We were fortunate to go on the excellent free walking tour about Art Nouveau and were shown this excellent example of Eclectic Art Nouveau designed by Mikhail Eisenstein.
With more than 800 art nouveau buildings in Riga, most of which have been renovated and/or maintained beautifully, it's easy to see why this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This stunningly impressive Baroque & Rococo palace, built in 1740 for the Duke of Courland (now Latvia), is as close to the grand palaces of St Petersburg, Russia, as we've seen.
The architect who built Catherine the Great's Russian palace also designed and supervised the construction of Rundale which is located in the countryside in SW Latvia.

Majestic Orthodox cathedral located near a park,with very impressive gold domes visible from quite far.The interior as well is well preserved decorated with beautiful christian wall paintings.Worth a visit!

The Old Medieval Castle was interesting as you were offered the 'We Willie Winky' Candle (Lit with a flame!) to see your way up the stairs of turret to the top, while the views at the top were very scenic.
It is so unique to be able to climb ruins of a medieval castle tower: dark, stone, spiraling staircases holding a lantern with a (real) candle to light your way.

When in Liepaja I always try to visit Karosta and Northern forts, as this part of city gives totally different vibe from the rest of the city.
Nice photographic view, especially at sunset as sun goes down into the sea and waves are beating at the ruins.
It's tall enough to see over the trees, and you can see Riga in the distance.

The church is your typical huge ancient church, very fine and worth a visit but the jewel is the organ,
Do take the time to explore the cloisters - you will be rewarded with a large collection of (mostly) metal items of all sorts - old church spires, cannons, even an Art Nouveau Metal sliding Lift door.
