About Riga

 

Founded in 1201, Riga offers its visitors a vast historical heritage and modern dynamism that is unparalleled. Throughout history the city has played an important role at the Baltic Sea region, for a long time being the largest city and remaining an important shipping hub to this day. The constant flow of people and ideas make the city a robust and innovative centre, housing dozens of creative quarters, filled with excellent cafes and restaurants, start-ups and stores. The culture in Riga plays an important role, and the city, having been the European Capital of Culture in 2014, continues to thrive, whilst keeping its historical charm intact. Old Town – the historic centre of Riga and a UNESCO World Heritage Site - provides views for a stunning stroll at any time of the day. Riga offers something for everyone, and possibly that is why many refer to it as the city of inspiration. Find out more for yourself at www.liveriga.lv
