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.
Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum and Turaida Castle will appeal to history buffs. Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs and Riga Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Riga: Cesis Medieval Castle (in Cesis) and Salaspils Memorial Ensemble (in Salaspils). On the 17th (Tue), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nativity of Christ Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Riga Motormuseum, and take in panoramic vistas at View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower.
