In Town Hall Square stands the the most symbolic building of the city. Built in the 14th century as the seat of the Great Guild (the guild of fishermen), a century later it passed into the hands of a guild of unmarried German merchants known as the Brotherhood of Blackheads, and it's definitely one of the top Riga attractions. Other places to visit in Riga include the very popular church of San Pedro (here you an enjoy a panoramic view of the city), Riga Doms (Lutheran cathedral), and Riga Castle, seat of the presidency of Latvia. If you want to count a leisurely stroll through beautiful surrounds among your must-do Riga activities, the Elizabetes, Alberta Strelnieku, and nearby streets are the best places to enjoy the Art Nouveau architecture of the city. You can admire up to 750 buildings of this style, which makes Riga the world capital of Art Nouveau architecture, ahead even of Paris, Brussels, or Vienna.
