- Old City Riga (Vecriga): It’s said, with good enough reason ofcourse, that the best place to experience the feel of a European town is to venture into their old towns and discover their cobblestones stories. The old city of Riga is no exception and many of the city’s main attractions as well as important landmarks are located within the perimeters of the old city.
- St. Peter’s Church: If the old city provides the stories, St. Peter’s Church provides the pictures.
