Look Inside the KGB in Riga

Espionage and secret-police work was the job of the KGB, known as "Cheka" in Latvia. These activities are now the focus of an exhibition that opened February 2015 at the former KGB headquarters in Riga, Latvia. Called the Corner House, visitors can see the dungeon and prison cells, the offices and a memorial to KGB victims.

The Corner House is the work of the Museum of the Occupation which is dedicated to the 1944-91 Soviet occupation of Latvia.
