I could not get a ticket to see the interior, but a nice building with important history. Although a relatively new building as it was built in the late nineteenth century, it was here when Latvia got its independence declared. The building is not large although it has much subtle details.

Interesting building on a hedges of one of most beautiful parks in Riga. It is not normally open to visitors, but tours can be arranged. In any case you will get inside as far as ticket offices and from there - as far as your tongue helps you.

Latvian National Theater is really National, as this is also the place where the Independence of Latvia announced on the 1918. Performances are for different tastes. The new stage became quite popular also!

Beautiful restored building with some amazing features, has some great shows but probably worth booking before you travel, you can visit the web site prior and collect tickets at the box office.

You can reach the theatre if you are walking along the city canal or if you are visiting Presidents Palace, it's not too far from there - about a 2 minute walk. The building is 100+ years old and this is the place where Latvia's independence was declared.

This is a picture of Latvian National Opera but not the Latvian National Theatre.... Does not make any change in rating if the issue is about the building itself. But if performance being rated then it is much different (Opera *****, Theatre ***)

Hi. You have a photo from National Opera house in a place of National Theatre. National theatre is one of eldest theatre houses in Latvia what was built as theatre and never use for other purposes. If you like traditional theatre it's a place.
