Visit the House of the Black Heads, one of the most beautiful buildings in Riga. Travel through the centuries and explore the legacy of the Black Heads brotherhood.
It's right in this historical building in the middle of the Old Town where the historical brotherhood was established at the end of the 14th century, sharing the headquarters along with the existing merchants’ guild. The young and joyful foreign merchants united in the brotherhood organized splendid events, later becoming honorable members of the local community. As time passed the house began to host visits of foreign kings and other noble guests and continues to fulfill this task up to today – concerts, balls, gala dinners and diplomatic receptions are frequently organized here. Now you also have the chance to explore the exhibition about the history and economic development of Riga City.
