“Take a walk...”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

.... through the old city. This is the essence of the old Riga and you will be rewarded with beautiful architecture, small shops, cafés, cosy restaurants and a calm and cultural pace.

Reviewed 10 June 2014

For those who love architecture. One of the most beautiful old town in Baltics, after Tallinn of course.

“Lovely to wander around, but slightly disney-ish”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

its so very very pretty, so much so that it doesn't look real! Even in the pouring rain. Take a walking tour and find out more about the city, and then just wander around, it's really quite compact and you'll stumble across most places.

“Beautiful and Charming”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Like the other reviews, cobblestone streets, boat rides, fountains, bridges, gardens, many good restaurants, shops, and beautiful architecture all around you. There is so much to see and do. To top it off, we found musicians around every corner.

ALL THE OLD TOWNS OF THE BALTIC STATES ARE LIKE THIS!

“Beautifull!!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It is so beautifull, like a dream. The gardens are just beautifull, the architecture is very nice. You can have dinner in a medieval restaurant and cafe in a very modern cafe. Everywhere is decorated with flowers, like a doll house.
