House Of Blackheads, Riga Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful place. Here was installed the first Christmas/New Year's tree :) It is currently under reconstruction (oct. 2017) so you cannot really see the buildings. However, it is still a nice square.
I was so disappointed that this gorgeous building was under reconstruction in the middle of August when I visited. I know it has to be done at some point but it's always a shame when you travel to a city and one of the greatest landmarks basically isn't there.
Amazing building. Looks very beautiful amongst the surroundings. Stumbled on it by mistake. Was going to the Museum of Occupations which is right next to it
Cool looking building with lots of history. Lots of cobblestone around here
The exterior is unforgettable! The surrounding square was interesting as well. Wear sturdy footwear as the streets are cobblestone.
