The guilds of murchants in the past also paid tribute to their city. By creating such buildings they develop the specific spirit of Riga. Just relax, listen to the music of street musicians (if you are happy enough) and immerse in the atmosphere of the old and modern times.

This is the square you will see in most guide books/travel reviews of Riga and it's just as beautiful in Person. Also, there is an ATM right nearby in Citadele bank which is useful.

The square has these well known and beautifully restaured old Schwarzmänner houses. Beautifull square. I give it a 4 because the ugly black box sacrophag building from the 1960s is taking away the view on the square and needs urgent restauration. It is in deep contrast with the old architectural buildings and the statue of Roland. But it is part of history and therefore should be preserved of put on another part of the city. If the black box wouldn't be there the square would look better.

When in Riga this is a must visit as the buildings are beautiful by design and house a lot of history.

Gorgeous but the map on trip advisor is off - the town hall square is basically the house of the blackheads plus the city hall building and the view of St. Peter’s church
