Riga is the capital and largest city of Latvia in the Baltic region. Riga boasts a whole wealth of history, culture and charm. Today Riga is a bustling city with great attractions to be seen. It is here that you can stroll around the city and marvel at its diverse architecture, visit the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia and find out what life was like during Nazi times, or visit the Art Nouveau for some extraordinary artwork. If you are looking for a more relaxing time on the beach then you can travel further afield and visit the sandy beach of Jurmala.
Riga's shopping district is in the heart of the city and is where you will find shops, boutiques and markets. When it comes to souvenirs, popular purchases include arts and crafts, Black Balzams (local alcohol), amber jewellery and colourful folk costumes.
The currency in Riga is the Latvian lat. Riga is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich meantime (GMT+2).
