Activity Details

Discover the rich historical, cultural, and architectural heritage that makes Riga the jewel of the Baltic States. On this 4-hour tour with a local guide, discover Riga’s magical Old Town with its elegant Art Nouveau buildings and the important medieval and modern sites of the city. There will be opportunities to stop for photos en route.

Begin your 4-hour guided tour with pickup from from your centrally located hotel, your cruise port, railway, or bus station by climate-controlled vehicle. Explore the magic of Riga, known as the little Paris of the North thanks to its medieval architecture and rich cultural life. Delve into the many attractions and sights, numerous shops, and unique cafes of the city. Stop for photos along the way in the city center.

As you travel through Riga, your local guide will point out the many fascinating sights throughout the city. From the comfort of a Riga sightseeing bus, admire Freedom Monument at the edge of Old Riga, the distinct Laima Clock, and the Latvian National Opera House, a unique architectural monument of the 19th century. Observe the Riga Central Station, the Soviet-era Latvian Academy of Sciences, and the Riga Central Market, Europe's largest bazaar.

Learn about the legend of Great Kristaps, whose wooden sculpture stands by the River Daugava, and view the National Library of Latvia across the water. Pass through the Art Nouveau Quarter, and pause to see the most picturesque buildings. Your guide will point out the poetry of building facades, the mysterious language of symbols and allegories, helping you to 'read' the history of the buildings.

Continue on by foot for a walking exploration of the Old Town of Riga, with its cobblestone streets and ornate architecture. Discover the highlights of this neighborhood, including Dome Cathedral, the Church of St. Peter, the neo-Gothic style Large and Small Guilds, Riga Castle, the preserved Three Brothers houses, the stately Blackheads House, and the Swedish Gate. Walk through Troksnu, one of Riga´s narrowest streets.

The tour will end in Riga Old Town.
