A small square in comparison to other European city main squares, yet lots of activity to observe. A few gift shops and cafes look out into the square and the main tourist info site is here to.

It is actually really impressive and you can't miss it. Actually you can't miss anything from the historic center of Riga, since it is rather small. In the center of the square there is the starting point of some organized tours and nearby you can find some outdoor benches with souvenirs if you are interested, but you should be careful.

Nice place to be on Friday eve! A lot of kiosks with local meat products, cheeses, ice-cream, honey, clothing, souvenirs and so on. There's also a stage where different collectives sing or dance from lunchtime till about 7pm.

Very pretty square with remarkable architectures. I would recommend visiting there early in the morning otherwise you cannot take a photo without the crowds of tourists.

Riga is a nice destination for a long weekend citytrip. All city landmarks are located within a walking distance. A trip to Riga can be well combined wit a visit to Talinn, Estonia.
