  • Very interesting and unusual collection of Applied Arts and Product Design since late 18th century. Furniture, book covers, jewelry, tapestry and many other household and decorative items with strong graphic and visual motives.
  • A great Museum in the middle of the old town. Interesting and versatile continuous exposure. Frequent exhibitions, which is really exciting. The last time the brighter is the work of the illustrious Roman Sutt exhibition in honor of his birthday to 120.

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.
