The Paris of the North

Riga preserves the charm of the 19th century along the cobbled streets of the Old City and the Art Nouveau dragons and lions of Alberta Street. Soviet influences are obvious everywhere, but all these architectonic styles coexist in an unexpected harmony. Latvia’s capital is a cultural event – with breathtaking castles, churches, museums, a fantastic Opera House, and some of the most beautiful parks in the country. The Regains are no strangers to fun – the nightlife has everything to offer, from the coolest clubs to the downright sleazy.
