About The Tour

Tour Description

This guided tour will take you on a walk along the narrow streets of the Medieval Hanseatic Old Town of Riga to enjoy the splendors of the Dome cathedral, Old Guild house, Riga castle, house of the Blackheads and much more.

Besides the old town you are visiting also other central Riga parts to admire the spectacular art nouveu architecture. Roughly one third of buildings in Riga are Art Nouveau and that makes our capital the city with the highest concentration of Art Nouveau architecture in the world. Moreover, art and architecture connoisseurs believe that it is in Riga that art nouveau found its especially powerful and sweeping expression.

In order to preserve Old Riga, Riga’s wooden buildings and the Art Nouveau architecture, the historical center of Riga has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The areas where Art Nouveau features most lavishly are Alberta Street and the so called embassy district nearby.
