“Don't speak Latvian?? Start here...”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Blackheads is not only the 14th century home of bachelor merchants, but a welcome spot for anyone who doesn't speak Latvian or Russian. This tourist information center can guide you to anywhere or anything in Latvia or the surrounding area. Through their knowledgeable and helpful staff, we found tickets to the National Choir, an expedition to Jurmala, and enough brochures to keep us touring for a lifetime.

You cannot miss that house when visiting Riga. The blackheads guild must have been a rich one in its days :)
