LV Parliament


Latvia's unicameral "Saeima" parliament is housed in a building of an eclecticist design, with the facade and the plenary hall in the renaissance and some of the remaining halls in gothic style. During World War II, the SS occupied the building and looted its interiors. After the war, the Supreme Soviet convened in its halls, before the "Saeima" moved back into it in 1993 after Lithuanian independence.
