Riga Old Town (Vecriga) Tours and Activities

star-4.5
255 Reviews

The Riga Old Town (Vecrīga) is the historic and geographic center of the city, located on the right bank of the Daugava River. Only remnants of the fortifications that enclosed the city between the 13th and 18th centuries still remain, but visitors will be charmed by the narrow cobblestone streets and the medieval architecture. The old city has something for everyone, from churches to museums to outdoor cafes and restaurants. Highlights include the 13th-century Riga Dome Cathedral, the tall steeple spire of St. Peter’s Church, Riga Castle, the House of the Blackheads and the Latvian War Museum, which is housed in the Gunpowder Tower. A trip up the tower of St. Peter’s is a must for its great views over the Old Town. During the holidays, large outdoor markets can be found in both Dome and Livu Squares and in the winter, an ice skating rink takes over the middle of Livu Square.

Stunning Art Nouveau Architecture Walk in Riga

Riga is definitely a city with beautiful architecture everywhere, but especially stunning are the Art Nouveau buildings. This luxurious, totally decorative style of architecture is one of the main reasons why the historical centre is included on the UNESCO World Heritage List and why those who appreciate culture and art visit Riga in the first instance. This tour will introduce you to so-called "beautiful era" or La Belle Époque in the beginning of 20th century, when Riga was one of the wealthiest cities in Europe. Our lovely and professional guides will explain you the philosophical meaning hidden behind the luxury facade decorations and will show you some stunning Art Nouveau examples - the most famous ones on Alberta Street and those that only locals know. The tour also includes visit to Art Nouveau Museum that has an unique collection of Art Nouveau design, art & furnishings.

Honest tour of Riga with the best private guide in town

star-5

Honest tour of must-sees with the best* private guide of Riga Every city has it's good, bad and the ugly, and there's always the option of highlighting just one side of the coin. On this tour we try our hardest to stay as honest and objective as possible, not loosing the perspective of a local at the same time. 4-5 hours, including a coffee break, might seem long, but a half day tour like that is the shortest possible time to cover all the most important sights that Riga's heart has to offer without a rush. Still - depending on your desire or availability, it can be longer or shorter as well - you can decide during the tour. It's customisable as well, so if you'd like to drop a thing from the itinerary or add something different (eg, central market), the guide will be happy to adjust. We don't take tours more than 5 times a week, so the tour would stay fresh and the guide wouldn't become a machine of spouting facts and figures. * as described by his mother and some of his friends.
