The National Opera was constructed between 1860 - 1863, but then had the name the German Theatre. The outside has got a classical design and the inside has got a baroque style. The acoustic is good and there are mainly opera and ballet performances, but also pop concerts sometimes. If you don’t attend one of the performances you take a guided tour of the opera or visit the café.

The opera is situated by the city canal with nice walkways. In front of the opera there is a fountain called the Nymph of Riga. It is from 1888.
