Tourist Info

Riga, the capital city of Latvia has a history going back more than 800 years. Its culture, history and architecture reflect all of the periods in time that have shaped it. Riga has medieval, gothic and Art Nouveau elements most obvious in its religious and political buildings. Before the Soviet occupation, Riga, which is the largest city within the Baltic countries, was highly respected as an economical power house within Northern Europe and constructed some of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings to reflect Riga’s importance in trade and diplomacy.

Unfortunately, many of the finest buildings have been destroyed in the wars but some traces can still be found. Riga lays on the river Daugave and the river Vecriga and the two sides are connected via four bridges, the city is also a main thoroughfare for trains that cross Latvia and is only a short distance from the airport.
