Another architectural gem that you need to stop outside and really study the front. There is a short write up about the building that is posted outside the door that gives all the history and a bit about the Brotherhood.

One of the most icónics buildings in Riga, it’s worth a visit. Although it is usually crowded, it’s worth a visit.

A lovely building in the centre of the Old Town, the House of the Blackheads was closed when we were there, but there is a board outside explaing its history and that of the Tallinn Brotherhood of Blackheads, established in 1399. Fabulous red, green and gold door.

Great to see from the outside but I don’t think it’s worth the money it cost to go inside. Does provide you with background to the use of the building and the Blackheads and you get too see the main hall.

This is somewhat smaller and less ornate to its better known Riga counterpart, but the building served the same function nevertheless as headquarters for the organisation which bears its name. Although it is not open to the public, it is worth a stop no doubt to take a picture.
