The central square with mostly touristy restaurants. But nice "feel" on a sunny day. Easy walk to all the Old Town sights

Wonderful place to spend a few days - buildings are amazing - I liked in particular the House Of Blackheads . The food is amazing at the Latvian restaurants and reasonably priced. We tried out new dishes like Beaver ! Beer great and it is very clean. People are a little ' stiff' but overall was a brilliant few days... More

The House of Blackheads is a beautiful example of the architecture and detail of the buildings in Riga Old Town. It seems ridiculous that during Riga's spell as European City of Culture this building is not open to the public. It would have been nice to learn more of its history.

The renovation of the town hall square has been quite effective and especially on a sunny day in autumn. Afternoon is not the best time for good photos of the House of Blackheads due to the angle of the sun.

Town Hall and House of Blackheads is considered to be of most interest to the visitors. Unfortunately the House of Blackheads, including a number of other buildings, was completely rebuilt in 1999. It is not clear how true to the original the new building is – I was told that many details have been omitted or not replicated correctly. You... More

I’ve read on Trip Advisor: “Don’t be shy, ask to be let in the Town Hall”. This is exactly what I’ve done. The guard tried to underrate the place saying there are just offices nothing to view, but at the end he let us in. And it is something we haven’t regretted! The whole Town Hall what you see from...
