The most lavish housebuilt in the 1300’s, the House of Blackheads is a common photo on many a Latvian postcards. In its glory days, the House of Blackheads was a frat house for unmarried German merchants. The House underwent some destruction during the Second World War and was rebuilt by the Soviets. A fine example of Dutch Renaissance architecture, the House of Blackheads is not to be missed.

House Of Blackheads, Riga Reviews
Very beautiful place. I went for the guided tour. Learnt a lot of interesting things about the history of blackheads.
I highly recommend paying to visit this place. You get a good introduction to Riga’s history and the building architecture. Even if you don’t go into the place, the exterior is highly detailed. The exhibit within gives you an excellent breakdown of each architectural element.
It's great that they rebuilt this house in 1999 following its destruction in world war two, it really is the iconic building of Riga. Its façade is picture postcard beautiful and the inside is carefully restored. There is an excellent exhibition in the basement with english language explanations of the history of the building and of Riga itself. This is the must see sight of Riga.
Just before entering the old town, you'll see this so extra ordinary building. A very popular photo object in Riga. Very beautiful indeed.
My favorite place. One of the best building in Riga. Very interesting museum. You should not miss it.
