House of the Blackheads (Latvian: Melngalvju nams) is a building situated in the old town of Riga, Latvia. The original building was erected during the first third of the 14th century for the Brotherhood of Blackheads, a guild for unmarried merchants, shipowners, and foreigners in Riga. Major works were done in the years 1580 and 1886, adding most of the ornamentations. The sculptures were made by the workshop of August Volz. Historically, the building’s function was to promote business activities in the city – it was a place for a gathering of traders and shippers for many centuries. The soul of the Black Heads house was its active and joyful "blackheads", who, as young and unmarried traders, were known for their temperament and enthusiasm for the organization of various celebrations and events. Their enthusiasm transformed this building into one of the main cultural venues in the city, which set the pulse of Riga’s societal scene. Also today, the building offers one of the most magnificent premises to organize events, concerts, celebratory dinners, receptions, conferences or other cultural events in the city. Visiting the House is a journey through its history, which reveals both its luxurious halls, historical cabinets and medieval cellars. You will see the largest-in-Baltics private silverware collection, crystal chandeliers, ceiling paintings at the Celebration Hall, weapons, armour and much more.

|Orts-, Seitennennung| . We have nothing to lose and a world to see 🗺 #Latvia . . Hier seht ihr Rigas wunderschönes „Schwarzhäupter Haus“. Wir sind extra früh aufgestanden um noch ein Foto ohne andere Menschen hinzubekommen bevor unser Flieger ging :) Ein Tag vorher war hier nämlich die Hölle los 🙈 Zwar war das Wetter heute mieser aber das war vielleicht ein weiterer Grund dafür, dass wir den Platz ganz für uns alleine hatten 😊 . Mädels und Jungs da draußen ich brauche mal euren fachmännischen Rat: Meine Bilder aus Lettland sind recht dunkel, trist - herbstlich halt .. deswegen würde sich ein dunklerer Filter anbieten. Jedoch hab ich noch so viele sommerliche Bilder aus Kroatien die ich euch zeigen möchte! Was soll ich tun? Erst Riga abarbeiten und dann wieder heller werden? Oder versuchen zwischendurch sommerliche Bilder einzubringen - auch wenn diese dann dunkler sind vom Filter? Ich bin echt ratlos 🤔 . Ihr könnt auch in meiner Story abstimmen 💭 . . . #Riga #schwarzhäupterhaus #melngalvjunams #gotic #rigacity #lv100 #latvijai100 #lettland #latvija #exploretheworld #wanderlust #reisefieber #reisenmachtglücklich #reiselust #adventureisoutthere #gosomewhere #travelblogger #traveldiaries #travelholic #aroundtheworld #wandergirl #citytrip #globetrotter #passportlife #photooftheday #welltravelled #lonelyplanet . #mermaidonvacation

Внутри дома Черноголовых. На подвальном этаже показывают документальные фильмы, смонтированные из различных видео-хроник того времени (19-20 вв), которые сопровождаются титрами и соответствующими музыкальными мелодиями: в первом история одного из главных символов Риги, его разрушение во время ВМВ и последующая реставрация; а во втором торжественные приемы и балы. Есть над чем подумать. #riga #rigaoldtown #melngalvjunams #latvia #europe #europa #earth #summer #architecture #archidaily #sculpture #photooftheday #travel #traveling #tflers #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instagood #instagood #trip #holiday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram

Дом черноголовых. Построен во времена Ливонского ордена (1330—1353). В конце XIII века существовало братство в которое принимали молодых, неженатых иностранных купцов. Первоначально его патроном был св. Георгий — покровитель рыцарей и воинов, позже — св. Маврикий (его символ — чёрная голова был в гербе братства) за которым закрепилось имя Черноголовых. Здание неоднократно перестраивалось, в период ВМВ разрушено. Восстановлено в 1996—2000 годах. Архитектурный стиль: барокко. Дата упразднения: 1948 год. #riga #rigaoldtown #melngalvjunams #latvia #europe #europa #earth #summer #architecture #archidaily #sculpture #photooftheday #travel #traveling #tflers #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instagood #instagood #trip #holiday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram

There is always a feel of mystery in our basements...👑 Story about Black Heads read bellow by @a.tokareva19 👇! #Repost @a.tokareva19 • • • • • • House of Blackheads Museum ⚔ Towards the end of the 14th century, the guilds uniting Riga’s merchants and craftsmen were joined by a brotherhood of banquet caterers to upper classes which quite significantly called themselves Blackheads. The Blackheads chose St. Maurice as their patron saint, who traditionally was depicted as a black soldier in knight’s armor. After obtaining their tenant’s rights and entering holy wedlock, members of the brotherhood become part of Riga’s patrician elite, serving as councilors, members of the Great Guild and respected members of the city’s community. The building was destroyed by bombs in the Second World War but was fully rebuilt in 1999.

Did you know that The House of Blacheads, initially called New House, has been first recorded in 1334? At first it was built very ascetic, but from 16th century it went through several reconstructions, each time getting more and more beautiful facade. It was demolished in several occasions, including the 2nd World War and after that reconstructed only in 1999. Nowadays it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Old Riga. #Riga #OldRiga #Latvia #Melngalvjunams #HouseofBlackheads #architecture #architecturephotography #citybestviews #city #Рига #Латвия
