"The occupation museum of Latvija" Museum of the Occupation of Latvia Tip by rollinstone81

This is a real fine museum and it displays lots of maps, pictures and stuff from recent Latvian history, about the occupation of the country by the Germans and the Soviets. There is lots of written information, in Latvian, Russian, German and English. There is a replica of a gulag shag, where the prisoners had to live in. This museum shows a lot about the way Latvian people think about their history and why they are so proud to be an independent country.

Directions: It's in Oldtown on the square with the blackhead house. It's in the ugly block building right in the middle.
