Riga City Breaks
WHY VISIT RIGA
The Paris of the North’, ‘The Second City that Never Sleeps’ – everyone’s so keen to tack on qualifying superlatives to Latvia’s capital, but regal Riga does a hell of a job of holding its own. For starters, the city has the largest and most impressive showing of art-nouveau architecture in Europe. Nightmarish gargoyles and praying goddesses adorn more than 750 buildings along the stately boulevards radiating out from Riga’s castle core. The heart of the city – Old Town – is a fairy-tale kingdom of winding, wobbly lanes and gingerbread trim that beats to the sound of a bumpin’ discotheque.
Undoubtedly Riga is royal, rare, remarkable and ravishing too. The city catches its tourists caressingly and leaves them awe-stricken. City Riga is studded with glittery and grandeur monuments- all breath-taking beautiful, true to confess. Be it Freedom Monument , Riga Dome Cathedral, Art Nouveau, St Peter’s Church, National Library of Latvia, Riga Central Market, Town Hall Square, Latvian Ethnographic Open –Air Museum....Riga holds them and boasts of them as well.
Riga is cheerful and up in chin at night time. Old Town Hall offers British pubs of traditional touch. One can enjoy and relish out here. Queens Pub provides best cuisines of British taste with the company of best and branded cool beers.
