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.
