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.

House of the Blackheads - Riga - Latvia⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Nikon D750 - ISO 199 - Tamron SP15-30mm lens f11 - 20mm - f/13 1/50 sec⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The House of the Blackheads -Latvian: Melngalvju nams- is a building situated in the old town of Riga. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The original building was erected during the first third of the 14th century for the Brotherhood of Blackheads. It was founded in the 13th century as a gentlemen’s club for wealthy single merchants and their journeymen. In 1477 they rented the Great Guild’s New Hall, which was housed in what is now the Blackheads House and in 1773, when the Great Guild moved premises, they bought it. The society’s members were mainly German, but there were also English, Scottish, Dutch, Swedish and Norwegian members.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The society’s not so politically correct name originated from one of their patron saints; St Maurice was supposedly a black African Christian Roman commander who died as martyr after refusing to kill fellow Christians. St Maurice’s head was depicted on the Blackheads coat of arms, thus giving them their name.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Unfortunately, during World War II, the building was destroyed, along with almost all of the Town Hall Square and nearby St Peter’s church tower. The remains were demolished by the Soviets in 1948. The current reconstruction was erected from 1995 to 1999 by Valērij Kargin the president of Parex Bank. The reconstruction was inspired by an engraving in the portal which read “Should you ever see me falling, raise me up, it’s your calling”.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The bear depicted on the photo is one of the “United Buddy Bears” who spent the summer of 2018 in Riga. They stand together “hand in hand”, symbolising the future vision of a peaceful world.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Did you know that the first documented use of a decorated tree during winter celebration was recorded in 1510 in Riga? Take a look to my story to see one of the first christmas tree decoration.

House of the Blackheads (Latvian: Melngalvju nams) was built in 1334 as a venue for meetings and banquets held by Riga’s various public organizations. The building was destroyed by bombs in the Second World War but was fully rebuilt in 1999. 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. Its members included young and unmarried merchants of foreign, mostly German, descent. When traveling and supplying exotic goods from overseas, they managed to protect their ships and caravans from pirates and robbers. 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 17th-century merchant organization, the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, became the sole tenant of the House of the Blackheads. A number of projects were worked out in post-war years to rebuild the House of the Blackheads and later archaeological excavations were carried out at the site. The job got underway in 1995, and since 1999, Riga again takes pride in the reborn edifice which has become brilliant testimony of Rigans’ affection and craftsmanship. The prophecy that was once written on the building’s doors: “If I am destined to ruination, I will be rebuilt by you!” has come true!

House of the Blackheads is a building situated in Old Riga and at the city hall square. Beautiful architecture. It’s as good at day time as sparkling by night. The square also has a Monument to a Bear which was gifted to Riga by Berlin (to celebrate Latvia 100) . The bright and merry Christmas tree in the area add the cream on the cake! 😍😍😍. . #helloriga #riga #oldriga #latvia #oldriga #ratslaukums #oldtown #rigabynight #citylights #houseoftheblackheads #historicalbuilding #oldworldcharm #famouslandmarks #iconic #christmastree #fairylights #buddybearberlin #monument #architecture #architecturalmarvel #architecturephotography #skyline #landscape #landscapephotography #streetviews #streetphotography

🇱🇻 Family time in Riga. We’ve spent a few days wandering the medieval city, sampling the local cuisine and waiting for it to snow. It finally did snow at 3am this morning !!! Here we are passing the House of the Blackheads and it fabulous Christmas tree. This ornate building was originally built in 1334 as a venue for meetings and banquets but sadly destroyed by bombs in the Second World War. It was fully rebuilt in 1999. _____ - - - - - #amazonoverland #latvia #riga #baltic #bbctravel #lovetheworld #exploretheworld #lifeontheroad #liveoutdoors #lovetravel #nomadlife #olympusuk #overland #overlandlife #overlandtravel #roadtripping #tourtheplanet #travelaholic #travelphotography #vanlife #vanlifediaries #vanlifeexplorers #houseofblackheads #melngalvjunams #houseoftheblackheads #houseofblackheads #rātslaukums #ratslaukums @charlotte_borrill @emsimmo71 @steph_searles

1510 - The first written record of a decorated Christmas Tree comes from Riga, Latvia.

'Tis the season to be jolly! 🎄🎅🏻🦌🎁 At the site of the first ever decorated Christmas tree in #Riga 🇱🇻 adjacent to the impressive #houseoftheblackheads As the legend goes, members of the Brotherhood of Blackheads, full of the Christmas spirit (and other spirits!), hauled up a pine tree and smothered it with flowers. Later in the evening, they spectacularly set the tree ablaze. And behold, a Christmas tradition was born! p.s. As you would have guessed, burning the tree part never really took off 😬 #merrychristmas #happyholidays #tistheseason #christmastree #ratslaukums #vecrīga #latvia #historylesson #june2018 #europeansummer #instatravel #instaholiday #pictureoftheday #potraitmode #shotononeplus

Вечер Колоды!! Раз в год, 21 декабря, в сакральный день зимнего солнцеворота в Старую Ригу слетаются волшебным образом крутые ряженые. С бубнами, гортанными песнями, коловоротами из сена на шестах, с колодами на веревках, огнями и костром... Это Вечер Колоды. Или Коляды. Наступление зимы, но поворот солнца на весну .. Все горести положено бросить в костёр, пропеться, пропитаться духом исцеляющего огня и двигаться радостно вперёд. К свету! Ведь через пару дней наш с вами световой день начнёт увеличиваться!!!
