Book a hotel in Riga
Riga greets visitors with a unique and breathtaking silhouette, beautifully reflected in the Baltic Sea. A stroll through the city centre offers a charmingly confusing mix of a modern metropolitan city, with exclusive shopping, crazy nightlife, international cuisine and ancient traditions in a capital that has been multi-cultural throughout its 800-year history. And all this in a city worth getting lost in.
Riga is not only a pretty sight with its tall church steeples pointing to the sky, it is also the most dynamic capital of the Baltic States. Riga is a vibrating big city, with broad avenues, majestic Art Nouveau palaces, trendy cafés, restaurants, clubs and shopping centres. Tourism is booming, and the opening of food places with specialities from the most remote parts of the world please the increasingly cosmopolitan Rigans, as well as visitors from afar.
For art lovers, a simple walk around the city centre may be enough (mere…) excitement: Riga is, above all, famous for its spectacular Art Nouveau architecture. There is no other European city with so many buildings featuring the particular 19th-century style. The easiest way to discover architectural extravaganza not likely to be seen elsewhere, is to simply walk around with your head up!
