Beautiful

Must see at night as the colours really stands out. Better at night than during the day. St peters church just around the corner

The buildings looks very nice, especially during the night. Be sure to have a look and take some nice pictures:) By the time I visited the square (Dec. 2014) there were two man-sized picture frames where you could fit into the frame and get the two buildings beside you, very nice!

As like all of Riga the town hall square is amazing. The beauty of the buildings the old trams that trundle along around the city are so beautiful.

The old town and the square were so pretty and very festive, puts us to shame. The market was beautiful and sold lots of homemade good, albeit a little expensive. We were very lucky to have aslight sprinkle of snow which made it web that little bit more special. streets are all cobbles, do leave your high heels at home.

Being there itself was a big surprise and i was lucky to spend my time there with my friends. Eventhough it was a small place, but fantastic to be present there and look around to have a pleasure on a tiring day.

I wandered around alone and at night with no one bothering me. With the Christmas tree it's simply beautiful and only a stones throw away from the rest of the Old Town. It's all quite compact so you can soon get around all the sights.

In this square centuries meet.

Nice place to stop for a wander, meeting point or just to take lots of photos. Some venders gather here selling some cool souvenirs.

Just don't try to compare too much to the German/Manchester markets.they are just different here. There wasn't the 'buzz' but the stalls did have some nice local goods. There wasn't the great choice for food on the market and some guy selling 'hot roast nuts' never has any intention of selling them hot as he didn't have a heater!!!! We... More

The square is quite large and was originally the market square, having been for many decades the economic and administrative center of the city. It has wonderful architecture ... Later, u choose a bar nearby and you can taste the local food ..It's a pretty cool place to visit.
