Pretty and peaceful

Lovely area, beautiful sunsets in the evenings. Lots of supermarkets and shops around for essentials. Lots of sightseeing to be done in the old town.

Lots of back streets to take a wonder down and get lost, but that makes it even more adventurous when exploring.

Lots of restaurants, coffee shops and bars to visit while sight seeing.

Visually pleasing

Riga's Old Town is a visually pleasing place, with lots of rebuilt old buildings. Little streets, big squares, different centuries of architecture styles. While not the best in the Baltics, it's still quite nice. I enjoy walking it in warm weather.

I have been in many old towns around but Riga s old town is very impressive. Amazing buildings great architecture nice restoration on all buildings . Just superb. It was very nice feeling strolling around the old town and admiring all those buildings. Nice city clean city but a bit quite and not so many people around. All in all worth for sure to visit.

A very pleasant old town. Ideal for a weekend visit. Also recommended the national art gallery an interesting collection of Latvian art and its development through time.

Very impressive to see how the inhabitants reclaimed the old city destroyed in WWII, they have put down the communist building done by the soviets and rebuild it as in the old times

The old city is very nice, compact and is good enough for a day trip.
I stayed for three days, Riga city is very green, picturesque and there are sights to see.

I highly recommend to sit by the Daugava river, Also, go up to St. Peter`s Church, you will see a great view of the city.

The parks are just beautiful, the churches in the style of Hanseatic German towns.

If the weather is sunny and warm, you will spend the whole day walking through the streets, sipping coffee, admiring architecture and enjoying yourself.

Romantic old city

The old city in Riga is the perfect place to spend a long weekend or even the whole week if you like. Plenty of good restaurants to choose from and the nightlife in Riga is banging!

There are many old buildings and barracks here, but they are often side by side with modern buildings. Lots of bars, restaurants, churches and hotels here. Happy hours at various times. Pleasant, but reserved people. Shopping malls. Trolley buses, buses and many taxis.
