With the stunning House of the Blackheads and the thought provoking Museum of Occupation as well as the main tourist information centre, this is a must visit place when in Riga.

Plenty of politics involved in the past and present of this square... But the House of the Blackheads makes up for it...

Riga is perfect to walk by foot and the wide disposition of bars and restaurants make it quite comfortable. Don't tourist too early in the morning since thing would start to open around 10 am.

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.
