Riga, founded in 1201 by the German bishop Albert, is the largest of the three Baltic capitals and boasts a real kaleidoscope of architectural styles and by the end of December the whole city is preparing for a vibrant New Year celebration. The sightseeing tour of the Old Town includes a panoramic tour by bus and a walking tour in the Old Town including the Riga Castle, the Dome Cathedral, the St. Peter’s Church, the Swedish Gate, the Three Brothers, the Large and Small Guilds and the Freedom Monument. In the afternoon we propose an optional tour to Riga Art Nouveaux district and a tour along the Riga Boulevard circle. The tour ends with a warm-up Riga black balsam drink at a central cafe. In the evening we’ll enjoy an up-scale and entertaining Fabulous New Year Gala party.

During the day we offer an optional guided shopping tour that will take us to the interior decoration and design stores, art galleries and fashion boutiques in the Old Town with the main focus on local brands and artists. During the visit we’ll enjoy a warm cup of coffee with a Latvian Christmas pastry in a cosy café. For the evening we propose an optional visit to the Lido Recreational Centre, a large restaurant and entertainment centre located in the largest blockhouse in Europe and surrounded by a lot of winter attractions. We’ll enjoy a traditional self-service Latvian dinner before going back to the hotel.
