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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum and Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs. Step out of the city life by going to Jurmala Beach and Tervete Nature Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Riga: Rundāle Palace (in Pilsrundale) and Sigulda (Velnalas klintis un Velna ala & Turaida Castle). And it doesn't end there: make a trip to Old City Riga (Vecriga), pause for some photo ops at Salaspils Memorial Ensemble, see the interesting displays at Riga Motormuseum, and admire the landmark architecture of The Three Brothers.
