Riga Neighborhoods

Vecriga (Old Town)

Cobbled, Kafka-esque alleyways peppered with cafes, chocolate houses, and amber salesmen comprise Riga’s atmospheric old town. Here, you’ll also find vibrant nightlife and Dome Cathedral.

Art Nouveau District

The late-19th-Century buildings of this explosively imaginative, artistic movement can be found along Elizabetes, Alberta, and Strelnieku streets. Discover the fantastical, the neo classical, and the downright freaky.

Boulevard Circle

These decorative gardens near the city center and beside the National Opera and Freedom Monument are a relaxing place to catch your breath.

Central District

The bustling city center, which encompasses Boulevard Circle, is home to excellent shopping, including the luxury department store, Stockmann.
