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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Riga: Turaida Castle (in Sigulda) and Rundāle Palace (in Pilsrundale). There's still lots to do: make a trip to Old City Riga (Vecriga), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Riga Cathedral, pause for some photo ops at Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis), and get engrossed in the history at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Riga itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Riga International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 13°C, and evening lows to 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
