Along the way, see Riga Castle and admire 19th-century wooden buildings as well as the decorative elements of Art Nouveau structures.

Enjoy a walking tour in the historical centre with its perfectly preserved paved streets, charming medieval atmosphere and a wide variety of architectural styles including Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Art Nouveau.
