While carrying out the full destruction of collapsed buildings after the Second world war, this place was transformed into a well-maintained square: the Philharmonic Square. Over the time is was improved with a small road network, resting places and a fountain.
It holds its current name Līvu Square since February 29, 2000, when the City Council agreed on changing it from the original.
The small square has gained a reasonable popularity among local people as well as guests of the city. In the summer time, the Līvu Square is filled with relentless liveliness throughout the whole week. Visitors of the square are surrounded with live music, outside cafes and different events. All tourists are attracted by the small fair that is opened almost every day. In the winter this square becomes the home for the central ice rink of the city.
Inalienable part of the Līvu Square is the truly beautiful architecture that surrounds the square into the Old Town.
