  WELCOME RECEPTION AND DINNER -  THURSDAY 31 MAY, THE HOUSE OF THE BLACKHEADS

The House of the Blackheads, originally called the New House, was built in the Middle Ages (1334). The House of the Blackheads was set up as a meeting and social venue for various public organisations in Riga. In the 17th century, it was occupied only by the foreign, mostly German, traders — the Blackheads' society. The House of the Blackheads, regarded as the most beautiful building in Riga, was destroyed in the Second World War. After the war, there was great interest in the House of the Blackheads and several projects for its reconstruction were drafted. The process of rebuilding the house was completed in 1999 and now it serves as a stunning location for events.
