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.
For shopping fun, head to Central Market (Centraltirgus) or Art Nouveau Riga. Get a sense of the local culture at Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Riga Motormuseum. Explore Riga's surroundings by going to Cesis Medieval Castle (in Cesis), Salaspils Memorial Ensemble (in Salaspils) and Old Sigulda Castle (in Sigulda). On the 12th (Mon), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. There's still lots to do: stroll through Vermanes Garden, buy something for everyone on your list at Galerija Centrs, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Peter's Church, and pause for some photo ops at Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis).

To find reviews, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Riga trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Riga International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 5°C in November, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
