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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Riga: Rundāle Palace (in Pilsrundale) and Sigulda (Turaida Castle & Old Sigulda Castle). And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Old City Riga (Vecriga), pause for some photo ops at Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis), get engrossed in the history at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Peter's Church.
