Town Hall Square (Rātslaukums)

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.

Although Town Hall Square historically was much smaller than today, it hosted many things - market, celebrations, tournaments and even executions.

Original buildings were distroyed in WorldWar II, but two most important have been replicated - House of the Blackheads and Town Hall. Between them stands Statue of Roland who is considered to be fair judge and honest guardian of city.

In the center of Town Hall Square is Museum of Occupation, behind that - Riflemen Statue.
