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.
Take a break from Riga with a short trip to Salaspils Memorial Ensemble in Salaspils, about 30 minutes away. On the 29th (Thu), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Old City Riga (Vecriga), examine the collection at Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, admire the landmark architecture of House of Blackheads, and make a trip to Riga Town Hall Square.

To find reviews, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Riga trip itinerary builder.
