Small Xmas market compared to others I have been today. Good mulled wine and limited food stalls. Usual wood leather stalls only thing I did not like was the fur stalls. Good for a 90 minute visit.

When looking at the outside of the buildings from the square it is amazing how well maintained they are, and the hop on / off bus stops a few yards away although walking is better

Some very beautiful buildings to look at. Riga old town is in a very small area, make sure you view it all so you do not miss gorgeous building like these.

Well-preserved buildings in the old town. Walking through the old part of the city to see this attraction is interesting. There are nearby places that are worth visiting as well. Recommended.

Impressive architecture represented in the facade of the house of the blackheads. As the square has been rebuilt after the world war unfortunately there isn't much historic buildings left. However through the square you can venture into the old town cobbled streets where you would...More

It was so lovely to visit “old Europe” and to walk about the town square, taking in a sense of what Latvia is about and what it’s cultural identity is.
