This was Riga's largest synagogue, built 1868-1871. It was the site of a horrible crime during the Nazi occupation. On July 4, 1941, hundreds of Jewish refugees from Lithuania and local Latvian Jewish residents were forced into the basement, which was then intentionally burned. Only the ruins remain today.
It takes about 15 minutes to walk here from the train station. It is easy to find: just stay on Gogola iela (street).
