Riga, Latvia

Photo of Riga, Latvia

Explore Riga’s quaint streets by daylight, shopping at localjewellery stores and picking out souvenirs for family members. A mixture of Latvian and Russian cultures collide in these narrow byways lined with restaurants combining cuisines from both countries. The smells of beef and broth mingle with the breeze and lure you into candlelit cafes for afternoon


As the sun sets another side of Riga can be uncovered in the rhythmic beats streaming from clubs just outside the Old Town. Dance the night away appreciating the distance between Riga's history and its potential future.

The city had been building and expanding its charming historical town so fast that UNESCO has actually threatened to revoke its protected status due to the number of ritzy bars and classy clubs.
