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.
Get some cultural insight at Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Riga Cathedral. Get in touch with nature at Jurmala Beach and Tervete Nature Park. Explore Riga's surroundings by going to Cesis Medieval Castle (in Cesis), Sigulda (Turaida Castle, Old Sigulda Castle, & more) and Rundāle Palace (in Pilsrundale). And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs, pause for some serene contemplation at Nativity of Christ Cathedral, explore the striking landscape of Gauja National Park, and contemplate the long history of Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum.
