Cruise arriving at Riga Passenger port (c) Freeport of Riga Authority


More than eight hundred years have shaped the city’s unique appearance and rich traditions. Due to its geographical location on the Baltic Sea (where East and West meets), Riga has always been an important centre of trade, finance and culture. Today all transport modes are connecting Riga with the rest of the world - railway and motorway networks, modern airport and fast growing multifunctional port. Riga has unique values due to its rather intact medieval architecture, the urban structure, the richness and quality of Art Noveau architecture and the 19th century wooden architecture. It was recognized by inscribing the historic centre of Riga as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
Riga belongs to the cultural space of Western Europe. Over centuries, the creative atmosphere evolved in Riga and inspired composers, poets and artists. Riga has hundreds of ways for enticing visitors - its rich history, architecture, gardens and parks, museums, art galleries and world-class opera.
