Nestled along the banks of the Daugava River, Riga offers a unique blend of old-world charm and modern excitement, making it a great place to visit for travellers of all interests.

The Old Town is like stepping into a fairytale. Cobblestone streets wind their way through medieval buildings, each with its own unique story to tell. The grandeur of St. Peter's Church and the enchanting House of the Blackheads will transport you to another era. The Art Nouveau district stands as a testament to Riga's architectural prowess and unique artistic identity.

Beyond its architectural wonders, Riga pulses with a dynamic cultural energy. The city is home to numerous museums, galleries, and cultural institutions that showcase Latvia's history, art, and heritage. From the Latvian National Museum of Art, which boasts an impressive collection of local and international works, to the interactive Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, visitors have the chance to delve deep into the country's past and present. The city's bustling markets, including the Riga Central Market, invite travellers to immerse themselves in the local way of life, abundant in fresh produce, traditional handicrafts, and tasty treats.
