Riga is a very beautiful city. Its Central district has preserved a whole complex of old, very old and ancient buildings, which will not leave you indifferent. At the same time, Riga has always been the “elder brother” in its small Baltic family. Compared with Tallinn or Vilnius, this city really gives the impression of a metropolis. There is hustle and bustle, it is having fun, attracts thousands of tourists, unnoticeably makes you fall in love with it, forcing you if not to linger for a day or two, then at least come here again.
Divided by the wide 500-meter-long Daugava River, Riga remains forever in your heart with its art Nouveau facades, large green parks and cozy small bars, where the minutes pass unnoticed by the crackling and twinkling of candles.
Surprisingly, this city combines its toy-like historical center as if descended from medieval engravings, a vibrant nightlife and a thriving restaurant business. Generous beauty, endless elegance and restless fusion of old and new in Riga has such a powerful charm that it can be perceived only to the accompaniment of the famous black balm of Riga.
