Main Attractions

With the advent of cheap flights to the city, Riga has fast become a favoured city break destination for visitors from the UK. Start by exploring the Old Town, a pedestrianised district with more than its fair share of interesting, historic architecture. The town square is ringed by St. Peter’s Church, St. John’s Church, the Museum of Blackheads, Porcelain Museum and the Sun Museum. The last one is an unusual institution with all exhibits and displays dedicated to representations of the Sun. Have a peek at the House of the Black Cat, so-named for the two statues of black cats on its roof. The impressive Riga Cathedral is also located within the Old Town. It is recognisable by its dramatic black clock tower, but the cathedral’s real attraction is the magnificent pipe organ within. Venture outside the Old Town to see the Freedom Monument and Laima Clock nearby. Stroll along Alberta Iela or Elizabetes Iela for a look at the distinctive Art Noveau architecture.

Shopping, Dining and Nightlife

Riga’s citizens converge on the cavernous Central Market for meat, seafood, fresh food and vegetables. There are also assorted stalls selling inexpensive clothes and accessories as well as souvenirs such as amber jewellery. The Cili Pica chain offers a choice of pizza and pasta dishes at fairly low prices. Those with a bigger budget may prefer to enjoy a meal at Vincents, regarded by many as one of the city’s top restaurants. The menu features traditional dishes with a modern touch such as Wagyu and avocado carpaccio, and confit of suckling pig. Dance it off to Russian and European pop music at Godvil, where the clothes are tight and the drinks are expensive. For a more relaxing night, head to the Skyline Bar for cocktails and great views of the city.
