Step out of Riga with an excursion to Rundāle Palace in Pilsrundale--about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), take in panoramic vistas at View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower, steep yourself in history at Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of House of the Black Heads.
