There was a lot to see in Riga, but this place was the special spot to sit and see. I enjoyed the buildings, the people and the space.

Lovely old square where the tour buses leave from. The Town Hall itself is a beautiful building as is the House of the Blackheads which is also on the square but closed just now. Nice eateries around it too. Museum of Occupation is in the Square but has been moved elsewhere at present too. It is well worth a visit.... More

It´s a very beautiful place, the old town of riga. Lot´s of old churches, and buildings, that worth take photos. It´s those kind of places, where you lost count of the photos you take. The restaurants and the cafes are overpriced, so my advice is before you arrive at the old town, buy water or others drinks, near your hotel.

I love the whole of Riga but the square has a great atmosphere. There were some street musicians and lots of very interesting shops.

The square us picturesque on a nice day with the church dominating the skyline and plenty of tourists snapping away. Although good, the other square is much better with more of an atmosphere and more places to sit and eat. Worth seeing but only for a few minutes

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.

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.
