Welcome to Riga!
The heart of Latvia and the Baltic states! Riga is the most convenient location for those who want to visit all three Baltic states and enjoy a mix of cultures. Riga has always been on the crossroads of eastern and northern Europe.
Riga holds stories of 800 years of turbulent history… the influence of German, Polish and Soviet times… All these facts make Riga an amazing city to visit!
The three most popular tourist destinations in Riga are the Old Town, the amazing Art Nouveau district, which was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, and Riga Central Market.
The Old Town is a must-see in Riga! Various styles are represented here: Romanticism, Gothic, Baroque, Classicism, and Modernism. It is a popular place to visit and hang out for both tourists and locals.
After the restoration of Latvian independence, many buildings in the Old Town were reconstructed or rebuilt to restore the historic look of the area.
The most impressive buildings in the Old Town are the Riga Cathedral and St. Peter's Church, offering a wonderful panoramic view of the city from a 72-meter observational tower. Among the most well-known masterpieces of architecture of the Old Town is the Riga Castle, which is also home to the Latvian President. One of the most important landmarks is the House of the Blackheads, with a famous Christmas tree not very far from the building.
Latvians are very proud of the fact that the first Christmas tree was decorated in Riga, where this amazing tradition was born.
The Riga Cathedral – the largest church in northern Europe, which at the beginning of the 20th century could have been proud of having the largest working pipe organ in the world.
You might also be surprised by the fact that Riga is a real hipster capital, not only in Europe but in the whole world. You won't see this many bars, neighborhoods, restaurants, and events for hipsters anywhere else…
Forget about the Maldives! If you want to enjoy soft, white, stunning sand beaches with fresh air, you must visit Jūrmala.
