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.
Get some cultural insight at Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum and Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs. St. Peter's Church and Riga Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Explore Riga's surroundings by going to Museum and Garden of Peteris Upitis (in Dobele), Jurmala (Sulphur Water Spring Lizzard, Lacplesis Monument, & more) and Cesis (Ancient Jewellery Smithy, Cesis Medieval Castle, & more). On the 23rd (Wed), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. Spend the 28th (Mon) exploring nature at Gauja National Park. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), pause for some serene contemplation at Nativity of Christ Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Kgb Building File No. 1914/2014, and take in panoramic vistas at View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower.
