The Old Town contains one of the largest collections of Art Nouveau Buildings in the world, beautifully restored in time for 2014 when Riga was nominated joint European Capital of Culture. Do not miss the Cathedral, the House of the Blackheads and Riga Castle.
The largest national park in Latvia, it includes a number of medieval castles, caves, sandstone cliffs, the Gauja River as well as the towns of Sigulda, Turaida and Cesis with their medieval architecture. It is possible to enjoy a ride on the cable car spanning the river for some spectacular views over the whole area.
The reserve includes the museum, the castle, a wooden church dating from 1750, Folk Song Hill, and nature trails. The castle dates back to 1214 and nowadays it is possible to visit the castle buildings, cannon room, prison, guard room and medieval cellars. There are also spectacular views from the top of the main tower. Image by Sixsparni, CC BY-SA 4.0, from Wikimedia Commons.
A special environment in which folk songs where used to express the desire for freedom and independence. This is where the Latvian Singing Revolution emerged and gathered momentum until Latvia’s independence in 1991. Nowadays the Park stands as a symbol of the power of song and the independence of the Latvian people. Numerous folk festivals are still organised in the stone amphitheatre on-site.
The castle was built in 1207 by the order of the Livonian Brothers of the Sword, a military order of warrior monks. Nowadays it is possible to see the ruins of the original castle and climb up the North Tower and the Main Gate Tower.
