We start your tour by taking you on a trip to the Museum of Occupation, where you can learn all about the country’s intriguing past, including its occupation by the USSR and Nazi Germany throughout the 20th century; getting up-close to many curious artefacts from that era. Then, head to the Old Town of Riga, which is a well-acclaimed UNESCO World Heritage Site and you will see why when you take a wander to see the Art Noveau architecture, in what was once a centre for trade and commerce since medieval times. Take a stroll down Alberta Street to gaze at intricate designs and carvings, before wandering off to find spectacular restaurants and cafes for some delicious local delicacies.
If you are travelling to Riga in the chillier months, chances are you can embark on a skiing adventure, which is one of the nation’s favourite pastimes and sports. Throughout the whole of Latvia, there are plenty of places to ski, from country courses to small peaks and competitive trails, along with leisurely courses, too. People of all ages come together to try out this thrilling activity and no matter what your experience level is, there will always be helpful staff on hand.
Once you’ve sailed down the slopes, try dipping into a Latvian bath and discover the exquisite sauna culture you can find here. Wet baths are popular throughout Latvia, where water is poured over hot stones producing revitalising vapour and humid conditions, inside saunas which offer a refreshing contrast to the cold conditions outside. Travellers can even make their way to the Sauna Museum, an open-air museum with multiple saunas that are still in use, which you can find 40km outside of the capital.
