  • Beautiful museum. Interesting knowing more about how latvia has grown over the curse of time.
  • Well equipped museum of Latvian history. For many of Latvian friends it was surprise that this exists but it has a lot of amount of information and old items for show. Workers on each floor follow you like a hawk from distance which I found funny.
  • Was a good and interesting visit but the amount of text in English is somewhat limited.
  • As nothing is in English it is not worth going here if you do not speak Latvian.
  • Very interesting

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.
