I had only heard the name Riga and had no idea about it. With a little reading,I decided to extend my trip to St.Patersburg to Latvia by overnight train-only for the brave,otherwise fly.
The OldTown of Riga runs for blocks and many ways rival Prague its unique architecture.
The most stunning building was HOUSE OF BLACKHEADS.bUILD FIRST IN 1344 IT WAS A REFUGE FOR UNMARRIED MERCHANTS.
The design of St.Peters Church and St.Joseph's Cathedral are among the many captivating structures in the charming Old Town.
Latvia has been ruled by Sweden,Poland,Germany,Russia,etc. and these nations all left their influence.
At the edge of Riga is the most unusual restaurant I've seen in the 100 countries I've visited. It's called The Windmill Reataurant for the large windmill in front. The place is massive and so welll done with literally hundreds of choices of foods,dessserts,etc. in efficient cafateria-like setting for 500 guests.
