Hidden Gems of Riga Free Tour


Hidden Gems of Riga Free Tour takes us Outside Old Riga in the part we call Center.

So many great places don’t get deserved attention in Riga because they are not located in Old Riga. This tour will solve this misunderstanding.

On our way, we will see splendid Art Nouveau architecture, Boulevard circle, gorgeous city parks, important historical monuments, and places of today`s importance.

A big part of our tour will also be interesting stories about people that have put substantial effort into the development of our city. A city that has been influenced by Baltic German, Latvian, Russian, Jewish, English, and many other people and cultures.

Many of the things in this tour are Hidden Gems that even locals don`t know about.

Join us to have a great time in exploring 19th and 20th century Riga.
