Riga is a timeless city, delighting travellers with a beautiful Old Town and an abundance of ornate Art Nouveau architecture.

A holiday to Latvia’s capital city, Riga, is perfect for travellers looking for plenty of beauty. Riga might be the largest of the three Baltic capitals, but it lacks the more obvious charms and more touristy aspects of Tallinn and Vilnius, instead offering a wealth of fascinating Art Nouveau architecture (a 19th-century style characterised by natural forms and elaborate details).

Some sources have put Riga down as having the highest density of Art Nouveau buildings in Europe, if not the world. During your Riga holiday, be sure to keep an eye out for the Ministry of Education building, the Boguslavskiy residential building, and the Lyebedinskiy residential building. Considering Art Nouveau architecture counts for nearly one third of all of the buildings in central Riga, you are sure to spot them everywhere you wander!

Architecture aside, a trip to the Latvian capital is fantastic for foodies, with Riga Central Market offering five pavilions of local street food (think fresh berries and pastry parcels bursting with meat), crafts, clothing, and miscellaneous souvenirs to cart home with you. Come Christmas time, the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town comes alive with festive cheer, with plenty of wooden stalls making up the local Christmas market. Discover the heart of Latvia on an escorted tour of Riga with Newmarket Holidays.
