This site contains the ruins of the Synagogue in which around 300 Jews died when they were herded into the building which was then burned to the ground. This atrocity took place on July 4th 1941. The site also has a memorial to the Righteous Gentiles of Riga who saved many, many Jews from annihilation. A humbling experience. Nearby is the Academy of Sciences which has a great view of the city of Riga from the 17th floor.
