Riga is the capital of Latvia, located on the Baltic Sea. There is much for travellers to do in Riga, both day and night. By day, just a stroll around the city to see the exciting blend of old and new architecture can be quite thrilling. Many of the old, medieval buildings still stand amongst the newer building of art nouveau style. By night, you can take in some of Riga’s fast and fun nightlife.
One of the sights you won’t be able to miss is the Dom Cathedral, the largest church in the entire Balkan region. The Dom Cathedral is in the district of Vecriga and houses a world famous church organ. You’ll want to spend at least a few hours at the Cathedral, and then the rest of the day roaming around Vecriga. After dinner at a quaint café, check out some of Vecriga’s vibrant nightlife to top off the evening.
