Riga Congress Centre is a property of Riga municipality. It is closely linked with the history of regaining independence in Latvia, and contributes to the image of Riga today. The founding congress of the Latvian Popular Front brought the name of Riga Congress Centre into history, and so did the Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors of the EBRD, Hanseatic Days and the celebration of the 800th Anniversary of Riga.
Riga Congress Centre has become one of the most significant centres of social and cultural life in Riga. The three halls, ten auditoriums, the foyer and the cafe have a capacity for over 3000 visitors. Riga Congress Centre houses the Education, culture ands sport Department and Property Department of Riga City Council, as well as box offices for concerts and theatre performances, and the cafe Livonija.
Also the Foreign Literature Library is situated there, with its stock exceeding 60 000 publications in 53 languages.
There is a guarded underground parking lot for 325 cars near Riga Congress Centre.
