Paris of the North

Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe. The capital city's center displays hundreds of famous Art Nouveau buildings that have earned it World Heritage status. Its Old Town bursts with vitality and boasts an impressive array of nightlife options. The Latvian city is the largest in all of the Baltics. Since its growing popularity as a tourist destination has produced a new crop of cafes, bars, and clubs, many dub it "The Second City that Never Sleeps." Use our Latvia trip itinerary builder to arrange your visit to Riga and any other destinations in Latvia that take your fancy.

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.
