Riga Town Hall Square, Riga

4.6
#3 of 113 in Sightseeing in Latvia
Landmark Tourist Spot
At Riga Town Hall Square, you can see symbols of Latvia's independence, such as the town hall and the statue of Roland. The statue of a Charlemagne's nephew--who was a fair judge and the defender of accused--welcomes guests from the middle of the square. Most of the medieval architecture was destroyed during World War II. On the northern side of the square, notice how the reconstructed town hall is topped with a Baroque tower and a postmodern roof. Look for the memorial plank on the spot where the city Christmas tree was lit in medieval times. The square also features the Blackheads House, the Latvian Occupation Museum, and the Sun Museum.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.

  • The famous town hall. Rainy day but still lots of cruise people on tours. Walked around. Lots of potential for many of these buildings. Lots of construction going on throughout the city.  more »
  • A very interesting site and architecture - not to be missed while in Riga. Also great views over the river.  more »
  • Busy but spacious walk as round the square. Plenty of food and drink options. Love the cobbled walkways  more »
