Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe.
Get outdoors at Jurmala Beach and Riga Zoo. Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Riga Motor Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Riga with an excursion to Salaspils Memorial Ensemble in Salaspils--about 30 minutes away. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, appreciate the history behind Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis), admire the landmark architecture of House of Blackheads, and see the interesting displays at Musee Art Nouveau.
