Museum of the Occupation

Recommended
This museum deals with the periods of foreign domination experienced by Latvia's capital, largely to the city's detriment. Gulag deportations of political opponents, the extermination of the Jews, purges of Baltic nationalists in the late 1940s... These dark episodes are explained in all their horrific detail. Poignant.
