Riga Walking Tour
When you are visiting Riga there is a lot to do and see, and while some of the activities are exciting and stimulating, there is also a more serene and interesting one. There are walking tours organised and this is an ideal way to see the City. UNESCO has recognised that there is something special and unique about Riga and as a result they have named it the capital of Art Nouveau. The city has a chequered past and as a result there is a section that is modern and another that is full of old architecture. You can learn about the history of the place you are visiting and bound to begin to love.
To make sure that you understand what is happening on the tour, there is an English speaking guide provided and she will be able to tell you all about the theatres and art galleries as you wander peacefully down the cobbled streets. You may have considered Riga to be a place that only has nightlife to offer, and while you will find plenty of places to eat and drink you will also find out that there is so much more. The tour lasts for an hour and can be booked all year round.

Riga Art Nouveau
A century ago, Riga, just as other European cities, was swept away by a style of architecture and living inspired by longing for creative freedom and daring opulence: art nouveau.
Often referred to as Maskavas forštate or the Moscow District, its neglected early 20th-century art nouveau masterpieces mingle with traditional 19th-century working-class wooden homes, some of which appear to be on the verge of collapse.
Riga Old Town
Old Riga is the historical and geographical centre of Riga on the right bank of the Daugava. Old Riga covers a relatively small inner area of the 13th-18th century fortifications where unique monuments of medieval architecture which, surprisingly, have survived two world wars.
