Riga Town Hall Square, Riga

(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Riga Town Hall Square into our Riga trip builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Camarinus purchased the Mansion from the 18th century and it opened the store and warehouse. Traded there in household goods and cosmetics-a professional and specific varnishes and paints, soaps and Eau de Cologne, bath salts and disinfectants. Nearly a century and a half Kamarinyh dynasty successfully conducted their business in Riga, so much so that in the year 1927 opened commercial-industrial joint-stock company "Kamariny Brothers", which sold not only paints and chemicals, but also medicines. Unfortunately, the fate of the building: it was unenviable destroyed upon the occurrence of the Germans in 1941-m to Riga. But if the House of blackheads, the Town Hall, the Church of St. Peter in Soviet times and during independence scrupulously, using old drawings, restored, on the site now stands Kamarinyh modern Home box, which only seated recalls a great building of the famous architect May. But the people on the old memory still calls it Home Kamarinyh.
