Kgb Corner House, Riga Reviews - Write a Review
The guided tour through the prison cells is really good, for a good price. Left feeling like I know a lot more about Latvia. A great emotional insight into the shocking recent history of Latvia.
This is a really must do in Riga. You should book the guided tour because you'll be able to learn many things about this dark period with a young excellent guy! You'll also be able to visit the cells : very impressive and gloomy place Don't miss this place
Get to see this before it goes all Anne Frank. I went to the Anne Frank House a few times before they added a glass and crome building on it and covered all the best bits in glass and sanitised the experience. The KGB building is raw and dirty and unsanitised and really frighting. A raw and unapologetically gritty tour that doesn't need to use any props as your imagination adds the pain, screams and smell of blood of its victims. That said the execution chamber is closed for renovating but well worth it for €5. My english tour was at 1pm
Although I would have liked to see the offices as well as the basement, the fact that the offices weren't open for visit wasn't in the hands of the people running the museum. This museum is very informative, with guides that aren't afraid to tell the truth without dancing around it. It's a very sad thing that this place will be repurposed, such a big chunk of history, even awful history, should be preserved, if only for a lesson for future generations. Go while you still can, but not for the faint of heart.
Very interesting historic site. You will come away moved by the events and conditions of the facilities. Staff was knowledgeable and provided insight.
