Riga is the capital city of Latvia and, at the same time, the largest Baltic city. It is located on both banks of the Daugava River, which divides the centre into the historical Old Town and the modern heart of Pardaugava. A popular attraction is the historical city centre of Riga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Sights like the magnificent House of the Blackheads, Riga Castle and the 800-year-old cathedral are lined up alongside one another. Discover Riga’s pulsating life by day or night, whether on the streets and open-air markets or amidst the city’s vibrant nightlife.
