The TIC is located in the premises of the Schwab House, designed by Karl Johann Felsko at the end-19th century and erected right next to the 14th-century House of Blackheads. Both buildings were completely destroyed during the German air raid on Riga in June 1941. Fully reconstructed in 1999, the Schwab House now adorns Town Hall Square, along with the splendid House of Blackheads. The square also features the symbol of Hansa trading cities - the statue of Roland with the Riga coat of arms on the shield.
