Riga — 3 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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum and St. Peter's Church. You'll explore and learn at Museum of the Occupation of Latvia and Riga Motormuseum. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Jurmala Beach, take a stroll through Old City Riga (Vecriga), don't miss a visit to Riga Town Hall Square, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nativity of Christ Cathedral.

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.
