Riga

— 10 nights

Paris of the North

Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe.
Step out of Riga to go to Jurmala and see Jomas iela, which is approximately 30 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), take in the spiritual surroundings of Riga Cathedral, take in panoramic vistas at View of Riga from St Peter's Church Tower, and admire the landmark architecture of House Of The Black Heads.

Nestled between Estonia and Lithuania, Latvia has a small but developing tourist industry and the country is authentic and welcoming. The Baltic coast stretches 500 km (310 mi) along Latvia's northern border, and lush green forests cover nearly half of the country. Founded in 1918, Latvia was occupied by both the Nazis and the Soviet Union, who incorporated the country and did not restore independence until 1991. Due to centuries of foreign rule, the country boasts a mix of ethnic backgrounds, while maintaining the Latvian language. With cosmopolitan Riga as the capital, Latvia offers a mix of urban excitement and rural nature.
