star-4.5
286 Reviews

The Riga Old Town (Vecrīga) is the historic and geographic center of the city, located on the right bank of the Daugava River. Only remnants of the fortifications that enclosed the city between the 13th and 18th centuries still remain, but visitors will be charmed by the narrow cobblestone streets and the medieval architecture. The old city has something for everyone, from churches to museums to outdoor cafes and restaurants. Highlights include the 13th-century Riga Dome Cathedral, the tall steeple spire of St. Peter’s Church, Riga Castle, the House of the Blackheads and the Latvian War Museum, which is housed in the Gunpowder Tower. A trip up the tower of St. Peter’s is a must for its great views over the Old Town. During the holidays, large outdoor markets can be found in both Dome and Livu Squares and in the winter, an ice skating rink takes over the middle of Livu Square.

Is your cruise ship stopping in Riga? Excellent! You have a chance to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site - Riga historical center!

The driving tour gives a great chance to see Riga from different angles - impossible to do on feet in such a limited time. Our priority is our client so we will be happy to rearrange things to meet your interests! For example - you do not wish to go to the market, but you'd like to see more of wooden houses - we will customize the tour for you. If you would like to stop for a beer or a cup of coffee to enjoy the Old Town vibe - it is not a problem! We are happy to go off the path to make your time in Riga relaxing and enjoyable!

Riga is definitely a city with beautiful architecture everywhere, but especially stunning are the Art Nouveau buildings. This luxurious, totally decorative style of architecture is one of the main reasons why the historical centre is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List and why those who appreciate culture and art visit Riga in the first instance. This tour will introduce you to so-called "beautiful era" or La Belle Époque in the beginning of 20th century, when Riga was one of the wealthiest cities in Europe. Our lovely and professional guides will explain you the philosophical meaning hidden behind the luxury facade decorations and will show you some stunning Art Nouveau examples - the most famous ones on Alberta Street and those that only locals know. The tour also includes visit to Art Nouveau Museum that has an unique collection of Art Nouveau design, art & furnishings.
