Quite a lot of the main attractions can be found in Riga and its Old Town. Castles and manors remained since the times of the Livonian Order, German barons and Russian Empire can be found in every corner of Latvia. Some of them have museums, hotels, restaurant, modern conference halls, others are interesting merely as architectural monuments.
Apart from museums entertainment activities involving making something by your own hands - for example: to mint coins, to shoot a bow, to bake bread or cookies - are becoming more and more popular.
Beautiful view of the city and its panoramic postcard photos are the most prized trophy of every tourist. In this section we suggest places with the best views of Riga.

Riga is the city that never sleeps, and this statement is especially true in the summer, when the sun so briefly sets. Riga nightlife starts around 8-9 PM when people begin to gather in restaurants and cocktail bars. Night-clubs open around 10-11 pm. If you are looking for some adult entertainment, you can check it here.
Generally, girls fill the nightclubs first as there is often no entrance fee or discounted fees for women until midnight. After midnight the real party starts!
Latvia is a small cosy country at the shore of the Baltic Sea. Clean nature, the sea, pines, beautiful architecture – from medieval castles and small streets of Riga’s Old Town to exquisite Jugendstil houses – and friendly and unobtrusive local people.
Latvia is a member of the European Union and Schengen zone, it has visa-free travel arrangements with many countries. There are direct flights from here to most European capitals and citizens of the EU, USA and Canada can come here without any problem.
