Travelers and Activities
Latvia's capital is a true gem for anyone interested in art and culture. From the Art Nouveau facades of the old town to the cathedral built in 1211 and the guild houses from the Hanseatic era, Riga has much to offer. The round of sights is complemented by the Riga Castle, the Freedom Monument and the "Square House", the former headquarters of the Soviet secret service. The best way to see the numerous treasures of the city is to take a three-hour guided tour. You can also take part in the regular English-speaking tours free of charge and without advance reservation.Party metropolis in the Baltic States
In recent years, Riga has developed into a true party stronghold for young Europeans. Not far from your vacation rental in the centre, you can immerse yourself in the world of pubs, lounges, discotheques and cellar bars in the old town. A very special address is the Skylinebar on the 26th floor of the Radison Blu Hotel, from where you can overlook the sea of lights of the city. Besides the disco Studio 69, the cellar bar "La Belle Epoque", simply called "Frenchbar" among insiders, is considered a hot insider tip.
