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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum and Nativity of Christ Cathedral. You'll explore and learn at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs and KGB Building. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Jurmala Beach, browse the eclectic array of goods at Central Market (Centraltirgus), pause for some photo ops at Freedom Monument, and take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Peter's Church.
