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.
