Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dzintari Forest Park and Ragakapa Nature Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Riga: Bauska (Bauskas Sveta Gara Evangeliski Luteriska Baznica & Trusu Pilsetina) and Rundāle Palace (in Pilsrundale). There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), explore the world behind art at Latvian National Museum Of Art, get engrossed in the history at Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum, and walk around Bastejkalna Park.

To see other places to visit, photos, ratings, and tourist information, read our Riga planner.
