Riga in three days.

I am working on a rough itereary for the region and at present I have three full days in Riga and possibily two half days. I arrive by bus from Vilnius and depart by ferry to Stockholm. I get the impression Riga is fairly small and three full days might be too much, I'm not interested in museums, interested in architecture, cultural and historic sights. Are any day trips from Riga worthwhile? I need to organize my hotel bookings asap and I don't know if I have allocated too much/too little time to each city.

Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

There is never too much days in Riga ;)

Its right that the Old Town is small, but if you are really interested in the old

buildings you can find many treasures by walking all the small streets.

Then you also have the Art Nouveau district and the Pardaugava wooden house

district both outside the Old Town.

Day trips could be the old castle in Sigulda or Cesis - there is more about this in

the forum and finally you could enjoy the beach resort Jurmala.

I like Ligatne. You can visit Ligatne Paper Mill, Secret Soviet bunker, nature trails. www.visitligatne.lv/apskates-objekti?lang=eng

but could be that it is easier to reach these objects by car.
