Everyone visiting Riga for the first time should start by visiting the city’s main landmarks. It is best to start getting to know the city's more than 800-year history with a walk through the Old Town and continue in the so-called quiet center district of Riga, enjoying the magnificent Art Nouveau architecture. Culture and art lovers should definitely plan a visit to the Latvian National Museum of Art and the Latvian National Opera and Ballet. For those who enjoy the city through food, the list of places to visit should definitely include the Riga Central Market and Kalnciems Quarter Market. The more contemporary side of Riga is best enjoyed at the most important building constructed this century - the National Library of Latvia.
Parks and Gardens
At the beginning of the 20th century, Riga's parks were not called parks, but resorts - a place to relax and regain health. It must be said that this description is even more accurate in today's urban reality than then. In total, the city has almost twenty parks and gardens of different sizes - each with its own character and personality. In this section the most popular of them.
