Know More about this tour

Not only does Riga have the highest concentration of art Nouveau buildings anywhere in the world, but on top of that it has a charming Old Town, dotted with cobbled streets and full of cosy bars and restaurants. On this Riga tour, you’ll discover the architecture of both Old Town and the Art Nouveau District, and discover how pretty this oft-ignored European gem really is.

The city is also home to the biggest indoor market in Europe: Riga's Central Market. These massive hangars were used to host mega zeppelins during the 1930s, and are an art deco and neoclassicism masterpiece. We’ll take a wander through the market, where you’ll get the chance to maybe pick up a few local treats, or try some Latvian delicacies.

As one of the fastest developing countries in the European Union, many young people are starting new and hip projects all over town, but retaining the authentic atmosphere that makes Riga so special. Old Soviet buildings turn into ateliers, workshops, and cafés, resulting in an interesting mix of the old and the new everywhere you look.

  • We were the only ones on the tour. The tour confirmation sheet did not state the meeting place. I remembered to meet at Radisson Blu. I choose the wrong one in Riga so had to run to the right one. Our tour guide was asked to be the guide as she used to work in the office of Urban adventures and they couldn't find anyone else. She was not a licensed guide. She did take us round Riga but had no knowledge of the art deco buildings, who they were built for and no help on any of the decoration stories. History of Riga was a little better, but not much. I got more information from a guide book. She was better in the market as she and her husband own a small food business.
    She was a nice lady, but the tour was very poor value for money. Think twice before booking and ask if you will get a real guide.
