Fine examples of Latvian artists in a breathtaking building. Holding openings and exhibitions it is a place to return to over the years. The building itself is worth visiting, its huge and it was renovated only recently.

Beautifully renovated just a few years ago, the building is as stunning as the art. Go up to the top floor and out on the terrace to get a fantastic view of the city and down to the ground floor cafe for a bite to eat afterwards. Take a picture of the building at night from the plaza behind it.
