Welcome to Riga – the heart of Latvia! It is a perfect place both for excitement and relaxation. Enjoy culture, music, art, and architecture, go deep into history, take a trip with a ferry or just sip a beer watching the time go by in the lively city.
Riga has developed thanks to its location. Standing next to the Baltic Sea, on the border of the East and West, it already tempted the Vikings, the Crusaders and the merchants in the 12th century. Thanks to Riga’s many landlords it has absorbed influences of many cultures. Riga houses wonderful samples of Gothic, baroque, classicism and above all – Art Nouveau. Riga has been the home to intelligent people for centuries. The evidence of this is the many art galleries, theatre buildings and churches that shape the soul of our city.Travel Jam
