Visit Riga

Riga is a fascinating city that offers one of the largest and finest collections of Art Nouveau buildings in the world today. More than 800 buildings in total have been built in this style, with many of them near the Old Town or central areas.

The Old Town is something that seems to come from a Medieval fairy tale. Whether you choose to spread your arms out on Rozena Street thanks to its narrow design, climb the tower at St. Peter’s, or shop through the various souvenir stalls that you’ll find on Skarnu Street, you’ll discover a unique way to relax and be entertained at the same time.

Riga Castle is another masterpiece that deserves a tour. Founded in the 14th century and completed in the 16th century, it is the official residence for the President of Latvia. Several museums can be found on the grounds as well.

For those who love seeing local monuments, the Freedom Monument, Swedish Gate, and the radio and TV tour all offer something to enjoy. Along the way, be sure to enjoy a tour at some of the best museums of the city, including the History of Riga and Navigation and the Bourse Art Museum.

Then finish a day with a visit to the sacred Riga Cathedral or take a stroll through Mezaparks to enjoy multiple forms of recreation in a forested environment.

Riga is a beautiful city that will let you get a taste of the local culture while you explore its place in history. Plan your stay and it will be an extraordinary experience.

Visit Latvia

Latvia provides access to the Baltic Sea. It has natural wonders to explore, such as the widest waterfall on the continent at Kuldiga. The castle ruins at Cesis are a popular spot to enjoy as well. Riga, with its world heritage site, is always a popular travel destination.

There are also hidden treasures to enjoy with a stay in Latvia. Consider stopping in Karosta, which used to be a secret military town. You can spend a night in the former prison and have a memorable experience by being treated like a “prisoner” during your stay.

Sigulda is a popular town to visit thanks to its castles and historic sites. If you prefer a small town experience, consider staying in Madona for its rolling hills, private forests, and beautiful lakes.

Yet one cannot ignore the over 500 kilometers of coast that Latvia offers. Many of its beaches offers sands that are soft, white, and warm. Most have developed amenities to enjoy while you relax as the waves gently come in.

If you are not at a beach in Latvia, then there is a good chance that you’re hiking along a forest trail. Nearly half of the country is covered in forest, with several nature parks offering unique services to enjoy.

Latvia is for the outdoor enthusiast. It is for the person who loves to explore history. It is for the individual who wants a quiet afternoon on the beach with the warm sun overhead. There is no denying the fact that Latvia is also for you.
