it's a beautiful town hall square, recommend visiting in the summers. it is very scenic and you'll find it quite difficult not to take photos of everything

nice buildings but not too special and there is a free museum inside base on local information but I don't have time to check.

My favorite place in Riga. Next to this building there is an occupation museum, Daugava river is very close so u can take a walk around the river. In this small square u can find the best souvenir shops

i was lucky to live in Riga for 3 years and i must say is one of the most suggestive place to live. it doesn' t matter the weather cold in the winter warm in the summer. But i can say i love it in winter with a lot of snow, i hope to come back soon

It would have been even better, if the House of the Blackheads was original. But the copy is quiet good and I'm glad it was rebuilt. Unfortunately they built terrible bank office at the square and are building one more. Just hope that sometimes the city authorities will blow them up.

There is lots to see here - the town hall, the statue of Rolands (patron saint of the city), the House of the Blackheads and the site of the first decorated Christmas tree in the world. The tourist information office is also in the square. It also used to house the Occupation museum but it has moved temporarily.

We loved Riga, and we think it is as charming as Prague. This square is amazing during the day and also at night. There are many outdoor restaurants in August and many musicians. We felt very safe in this city and it is very clean. We drove over 2000 miles in the Baltic states, and this trip was the most... More

Nice Christmas atmosphere with street musicians and Christmas lights. Great spot right at the heart of the old town.
