🇱🇻 La maison des Têtes Noires, c’est LE bâtiment phare de Riga : impossible de le louper ! ✨ { swipez pour voir plus de détails de cette maison }. . 👁‍🗨 L’HISTOIRE DE CETTE MAISON Ce bâtiment, construit en 1344, était la résidence pour les marchands célibataires de passage à Riga. Ils étaient regroupés au sein de la puissante confrérie des « Têtes Noires » (baptisée ainsi parce qu'elle avait une tête d'africain pour emblème). 🧔🏿 Le style du bâtiment se retrouve dans de nombreuses villes de l’ancienne Ligue Hanséatique. La maison a entièrement été détruite pendant la 2nd Guerre Mondiale mais reconstruite à l’identique en 1999. 🏗 . 👁‍🗨 LA LIGUE DES TÊTES NOIRES Cette ligue était une association de marchands célibataires, d'armateurs et d'étrangers, active en Estonie et en Lettonie du XIVe siècle jusqu'en 1940. 🗺 Il existe ainsi une maison des Têtes Noires à Tallinn également. . ─────────── 𖤥 Maison des Têtes Noires, Riga 〰️ Lettonie ❀ www.mytravelbackground.com ─────────── #PaysBaltes #Baltics #Lettonie #Latvia #Riga #EnjoyLatvia #RigaOriginal #VisitRiga #Europe #CityBreak #MaisonTetesNoires #BlackheadsHouse

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.

This must have been the weirdest but at the same time most brilliant opera performance I have ever seen: “Duo miaulé” by Maurice Ravel in a perfomance at the Blackhead’s House this evening. #opera #catsofinstagram #cats #miau #catsopera #blackheadshouse #riga #aivp #portcity #latvia

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.
