Treaty of Riga
Nov 2021
Interesting from cultural and historic point of view. This is the place where the Treaty of Riga was signed in 1921 (among Poland, Soviet Russia Ukraine) ending the war.

Lovely building totally rebuilt since the war
Exhibition well laid out with a lot of info set out in English
Probably worth being first in your itinerary as it gives quite a lot of info in early Latvia so sets the scene well

Cool Reconstructed Building
Oct 2021
It is a cool building with some great history behind it but what you are looking at is a complete reconstruction. All that was left was the basement after the Germans bombed it in WWII. Riga has mostly done a good job restoring damaged building from WWI and WWII.

Riga Rising
Sep 2021
Everything that can define a Rigan is shown with this building. They have been oppressed so many times but their resolve and determination is part of the rebuilding of this fantastic structure and country too.

The history attached to this area and building is really interesting. So much to read, explore and see inside there. They have a great section inside that you can browse and interact with when looking at the different parts of the structure and what they symbolise.

A truly enjoyable activity.

Tallinn has also one, but more modest. It is historic and has also nice architecture. Don't miss it!

It doesn't get better than this visually. It's an awesome structure complex thankfully rebuilt after the war destroyed it. Super impressive at any time of the day too. I'm quite fond of this and you will be too when you see it yourself. Yea, you.
