Paris of the North
Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe. The capital city's center displays hundreds of famous Art Nouveau buildings that have earned it World Heritage status. Its Old Town bursts with vitality and boasts an impressive array of nightlife options. The Latvian city is the largest in all of the Baltics. Since its growing popularity as a tourist destination has produced a new crop of cafes, bars, and clubs, many dub it "The Second City that Never Sleeps." When using our Latvia trip planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.
