There are some nice houses at the Riga Town Hall Square, but you don't get the feeling of Old Town Riga as you do in the Dome Square.

We were here on a port stop on a cruise and we were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of Riga. There is a great restaurant around the corner that had some great local food and beer. Enjoy.

This is the town square and it has a few nice places for a photo op. Worth checking out and centrally located.

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.
