The Town hall sq has plenty of buildings and attractions right in a 360 degree circle. The House of the Blackheads, Town Hall, Tourist Inf. Cobble streets and a great feel to it.

Easily the best part of the city especially the House of Blackheads. Not crowded even on a sunny day during late Spring. Wide choice of restaurants nearby but probably more expensive than elsewhere. Biggest disappoint was a hippy-style City Tour Bus costing 15 euros. The commentary through the headphones kept transferring from English to other languages or cutting out altogether... More

When you go to Riga, you must take a guided tour. Understanding the history of Latvia is rewarding and enriching. Riga Town Hall Square will be one of the stops on that tour and well worth the time spent. Enjoy!

The most beautiful place in the city. The most outstanding buildings on the square are the Riga City Council and The House of Blackheads. Also there are several cosy restaurants and cafes there.

You will definitely not miss it when in Riga! This is the place to start your Old Riga exploration or end it, keeping it for the dessert. Probably the most beautiful spot in the Old Riga probably the most photographed!

During our visit in Riga, we stayed for few minutes in Town Hall Square, which seems to be a perfect place to listen a concert or have a drink with your friends...
