Why go to Riga

From fairytale architecture and top museums to trendy restaurants and a thumping nightlife, Riga city breaks have a lot to pack in. The cosmopolitan capital of Latvia has a youthful energy best seen in its bustling bars, and a fascinating history that reveals itself in the city streets.

The Baltic bombshell boasts one of the largest Art Nouveau neighbourhoods in the world, with hundreds of buildings in the unique architectural style. Stroll through the winding lanes of the old town and you’ll find ancient churches, kooky theatres, and buildings topped with Gothic spires.

Its buildings aren’t the only place to see evidence of Riga’s cultural clout. A former European Capital of Culture, the city’s impressive museums range from the Latvian Museum of Art to the sobering Museum of the Occupation of Latvia. After delving into Riga’s absorbing history – which includes time under both Soviet and Nazi rule – pay a visit to the triumphant Freedom Monument.
