Pretty view from the outside but this is one of the main attractions in Riga and you cant go in with no history tour or anything. If you go to Riga I'm sure you'll go there, take a few snaps and then move on, 5 mins worth at most (though looks better at night)

Is unique, well restored, architectural buildings that brings back the history of Riga. In stark contrast there is a cube shaped former communist party headquarters that now houses the Occupation Museum. This reflects the historical background of the country versus the brief episode under Soviets occupation.

Nice square surrounding with Town Hall and House of Blackheads, and statue in the middle. Good starting point for your Riga tour by foot!

Museum of the Occupation building is empty, House of Blackheads was just re-constructed so it's not really historic, and the rest of the square is a parking lot and pick-up point for tour buses.

There are places to eat and places to spread a blanket for a picnic. The buildings all around the square are beautiful.
