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.
Step out of the city life by going to Jurmala Beach and Dzintari Forest Park. Family-friendly places like Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Freedom Monument will thrill your kids. Go for a jaunt from Riga to Jurmala to see Kemeri National Park about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Central Market (Centraltirgus), contemplate the long history of House of the Black Heads, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Peter's Church, and take an in-depth tour of Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs.
