Take the opportunity ti discover Riga old town. The heart of Riga lies in its old town – Old Riga. Each step on its cobbled streets
reveals a page of the eight centuries long history of the city. It is small enough to make you feel at home and at the same time also big enough to keep you enraptured by its history and UNESCO world heritage. Take your time to enjoy it! Old Riga is the historical and geographical centre of Riga, located on the right bank of the Daugava River. It comprises a fairly small 13th-18th century interior fortification system with unique monuments of medieval architecture – complexes of residential buildings and sacred buildings that have surprisingly survived both World Wars. The narrow cobbled streets and squares exude antiqueness of an old town. It is impossible to leave the vivid Art Nouveau buildings unnoticed – Riga is justly considered the capital of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe. Pārdaugava, located on the left bank of the Daugava River, is home to unique 19th century wooden architecture. The Ethnographic Open air Museum in the very outskirts of the city, one of the oldest such museums in Europe, is famous for the log building of ancient Latvian farmers.
