House of Blackheads, Riga: 43 reviews and 100 photos

This building that really stands out from the crowd within the Town Hall Square, with its striking facade of blackskinned men in medieval costume, was orginally the headquarters of a guild of bachelor German merchants.

Open Tuesday to Sundays 10am to 5pm. Admission about 2.

Rebuilt since the Soviet authorities in the 1940s demolished much of the Town Hall Square to eradicate German architecture.
