There is so much to discover in Riga. The Old Town, the historic centre of Riga, is today included in the UNESCO World Heritage. Despite being more than 800 years old, this is a modern European capital that offers numerous open-air cafes, operas and concerts; brilliant architecture, from the medieval to the Art Nouveau; an old city centre; good shopping and small, cosy restaurants; you will also find hundreds of green areas and parks in the city; forty museums; a lot of theatres; and active artistic life.
Riga manages to keep in harmony with its vast green areas and parks in the very centre of the city. Or just choose to take a walk in the Old Town on its cobblestone streets and just look up at the eaves and feel the wings of history. The main sights in the old town are Riga Castle, St Peters Church, and the Dome Cathedral. It is easy to go around in the city with public transport, buses, trolley-buses and trams taking you to any part of the city in 35 minutes.
