Beautiful place. It is the symbol of Riga. The place was very clean and best to do people watching. Was lucky enough to enjoy a live street performance when I was there.

The best ever place to do people watching. Everyone here was so well dressed and the place was clean and chewing gum free- a real change from Britain

Riga Town Hall Square consists of a mix of modern, reconstructed and old architecture. The main attraction is the House of the Blackheads which was actually destroyed in World War Two then rebuilt in the 1990s. As a piece of architecture it is absolutely stunning. On the square there is a statue, the Town Hall and several other period buildings.... More

When I visited there in 2013 The Town Square was filled with many Tourists each trying to capture a moment in time. Needless to say it was also my turn to do the same.

Most tourists will end up here at some stage, to see the renewed Town Hall, the Blackheads House, and the chilling Museum of the Occupation of Latvia. Not the prettiest of squares possibly, but not too shabby nonetheless. Some tacky souvenir stores as well, inevitably.
