Beautiful old town and Town Hall Square. The centre of Riga is very picturesque but small and easily-seen on foot. Of course full of bars and restaurants for all tastes and wallets.

Well worth a visit to see Rigas history. If history is what you like give it a go. There is no uninteresting sites in Riga!

Good place for a photo stop but all pretty bare and uninteresting. Admittedly I did visit on a cold and grey February day so not seeing it at its best.

The Square itself is immensely impressive and I loved the architecture plus the nearby market stalls. However, you need to be aware about local or non-local pickpocketing that occurs on a daily basis! Enjoy it safely.

The town hall square is beautiful, although there is very little to do as the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia is currently getting renovated and has moved. The buildings and the architecture looks amazing. It is very picturesque in the snow. There are several coffee shops surrounding the square for when it gets too cold!

Nothing interesting but architecture is very good. This is like a square but one side is open Dauguva river. Actually nothing interesting for this square but if you went there may be you can visit museum which is very close to this square.

Bright and beautiful buildings, as well as the whole city center of Riga. Does not take a lot of time to find. Thumbs up!

Typical old town with lots of nooks and corner shops to explore. Loved walking around with a hot cup of coffee on a cold winter evening.

Small and pretty square useful for a photo or to find a tour guide. Sadly the museum of occupation has moved for now so that removes some of the attraction.
