    Little little-visited museum in the 1.Stock. Admission free but donation appreciated. Lovingly designed. Even if you don't speak the language the pictures tell much about the soul of the Latvians. How can you fight for freedom without weapons. Exemplary as the Latvians together have stood. When the hour x came, they all came and have defied the occupiers with courage and determination.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
