Town Hall Square

The historic center of Riga. The central element of it is the House of Blackheads, one of the architectural treasures of Riga, dating from 1344, it was destroyed in 1941, and the Soviets completely pulled down the ruins in 1948. No one at the time paid attention to an old German inscription on the building’s wall: “If you shall ever destroy me, one day you shall build me again.” The striking Gothic building with steep, stepped walls was rebuilt in 2000.
