Riga is Latvia’s capital and cultural hub with architectural heritage found throughout most of the city.

At the heart of Riga lies the dome square with its surrounding cobbled streets.

Also, no other European city has preserved and restored so many historic fin-de-siècle buildings.

In fact the whole country is dotted with medieval castles and fortress ruins along with younger stately homes. Visitors are able to take guided tours and experience some of the romance of times past.
