  • There is war museum inside. It is situated in four floors from different periods. My husband and son liked it very much. Visiting is for free, to go through all exhibition you need about 2 hours
  • This was virtually the first place I spent some time at in Old Riga, forming effectively a notable entrance at one spot to the Old Town. Built in 1650, it's worth going inside for the excellent history display, a good introduction to Riga's past, which of course was always centred close to the safe river port some 15k from the ocean.
