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.
Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Rundāle Palace are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Cesis Medieval Castle and Art Museum RIGA BOURSE. Explore Riga's surroundings by going to Cesis (May Park & Araishi wind mill), Bauska (Bauska Castle & Bauska Town Hall) and Dubulti Lutheran church (in Jurmala). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Latvian National Museum Of Art, take an in-depth tour of Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum, stroll around Bastejkalna Park, and admire the striking features of JJugenda Stila Nami, Riga.
