A visit to Riga Recapped
The amazing mix of medieval hub and contemporary town is what makes Riga one of the premier vacation destinations in Europe. After 700 years of foreign invasion, it now enjoys freedom and it grants you liberty as well to explore the city and have the best of all that it has to offer.
