“Historical replica of the Town Hall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Riga suffered a great deal of damage during WWII, so most of the buildings in the city has been reconstructed using the building plans and pictures to recreate it. It stand majestically in the square where locals and tourist gather. Not to be missed.

“Arhitecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Worth a small visit, mostly because of the House of Blackheads. It should be part of anyones old town tour as the heart of the old town.

“Old Riga Town Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Not an awful lot to the square but the most important stop would be at the Tourist Information shop which is directly facing the Townhall, everything you will need will be in there, stop and have a good look at the building housing the Tourist Shop it is pretty spectacular. You can book bus and walking tours from here, as you look around you will see a Black Building to the left hand side of the Townhall underneath it you will find a lot of information about the occupation of Riga by Nazis and Soviets.

“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.
