Town Hall and House of Blackheads is considered to be of most interest to the visitors. Unfortunately the House of Blackheads, including a number of other buildings, was completely rebuilt in 1999. It is not clear how true to the original the new building is – I was told that many details have been omitted or not replicated correctly. You... More

I’ve read on Trip Advisor: “Don’t be shy, ask to be let in the Town Hall”. This is exactly what I’ve done. The guard tried to underrate the place saying there are just offices nothing to view, but at the end he let us in. And it is something we haven’t regretted! The whole Town Hall what you see from...

What a lovely place to look around! We were here at the end of summer and there were many summer terraces to sit at, enjoy the view and do some people watching in the square.

We visited Riga and the Town Hall Square on our recent Baltic cruise, and it's beautiful. Enchanting buildings, and there was a great market when we were there. Well worth a visit.

We took lots of photos here as it's a great spot for it!! The buildings are lovely to look at and it's a nice area to just sit around for a while and see what's going on. Lovely area with lots of restaurants nearby.

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.
