Following a meeting by your licensed guide, we are on our way to admire the main stories, hidden medieval courtyards and amazing places of the Latvian capital.

Sightseeing drive will introduce you to the eclectic architecture, greeting atmosphere and culture of this small but pretty metropolis located on the Daugava River which is also called “The River of Destiny.”

Riga is not only world-famous for its remarkable collection of Art Nouveau style buildings, but also for much more impressive and less fairy-tale looking- the medieval old Riga. Founded in 1201, “Le Petit Paris”, as it is honorably nicknamed, also lives up to its title in 2014 as European Capital of Culture.

Tempting white sand dunes and salty sea air, is what we will take in after a short drive behind the city´s boarders. You will see the delightful Baltic Sea coast of this unique retreat to discover the versatility of this seemingly endless resort once filled with small timber houses, today boasting everything from glass tiled apartment buildings to opulent mansions of the modern era.
The main walking street and visiting card of the town offers plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants for a lunch break or to simply rest your feet and to have a rest.
For families with children, we will recommend some free time for fun in the Dzintari Forest Park a few minutes from the seaside. It is an amazing venue for spending time in fresh pine forest atmosphere with playgrounds for children, paths to enjoy a relaxing walk
