“Amazing buildings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

It is heart of Riga. Place you must visit first. If you speak Russian you can take a guide there. Also it is a tourist bus stop nearby, so you can have 1 hour excursion of the city center and old town, also visit another part of Riga on other bank of river Daugava,

“You must see this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Look out for the outlines of the houses that once stood there in the square, the House of the Blackheads and the old Merchants House.

“The best things in life are free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

If you are in Riga, make sure you visit the Town Hall Square. From here you can view the House of Blackheads, depressing looking Museum of Occupation, number of neat houses and if you really look around well, you may find a very ugly soviet style architectural "miracle" hiding near the Town Hall.

“Underrated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Riga is an underrated city! I love the Town Hall Square with the beautiful House of Blackheads and St Peter's Church. A man was playing the piano in the middle of the square when I was there, making it an even more magical experience. Definitely worth a visit!

“Tourist information and sights in 1”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Surprisingly in a dead-zone of Riga, but the tourist information was great, and the buildings in the square are stunning. Easy to see, almost impossible to avoid, and luckily you won't want to miss this
