The House of Blackheads is where the merchants-to-be had their guild
This noticeable and austere black building is clearly out-of-place
Constrains photos of Latvia since 1839, with focuses on the World Wars and 1905 Revolution
St Roland is considered to be the patron saint of Riga
Housed the guild of the tradesmen, who would join after being a member of the Blackheads (see House of Blackheads)
Pretty to look at, but not open for visitors
Another pretty building just behind the Big Guild, this one housed the craftsmen's guild
A smaller, less spectacular church near St
