Example of wonderful architecture in the Riga. The unusually neat facade and lively colours. Nice backlighted at night. See also a museum of the occupation (building beside). You will learn a lot about relations between Latvia with Russia.

It has a unique style. First visit dated back to winter 2013 and secornd August 2015. Much nicer to see under the Sun. Worthwhile investing 1 hour of your time in absorving each and every detail.

Riga Town Hall Square is a great place to see and be seen. It is picturesque, clean and great place to meet. Having said that, there is not much else to do in the square except a couple of tourist traps and a museum.

This is the center of Riga. it is lined with many important landmarks such as the town hall and the house of the blackheads as well as the highest tower of the old town. this together with the rest of the city is definitely worth a visit.

This square is something the Soviets wanted to destroy from memories - did not happen. But free people say that bad times must be remembered - so the statue to most bloody soviets in early 20's was not removed but the museum dedicated to them was over set to the museum of occupations (first edition). At same time - old... More

Sitting on the café at Riga town hall square and listen to the street performer singing is really an enjoyable experience. We had cocktails and nice pizza. The price is just a fraction comparing to Scandinavia countries. Riga old town is a place worth to visit.

When in Riga visit the House of the Blackheads in the Town Hall Square. This was rebuilt from photographs following its destruction. Alongside this is the Occupation Museum a grim reminder of life in Latvia under Soviet occupation. This visit is harrowing & you need two days to really do it justice.
