Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe.
Appreciate the collections at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs and Riga Motormuseum. Get a sense of the local culture at Old City Riga (Vecriga) and Rundāle Palace. Change things up with a short trip to Turaida Castle in Sigulda (about 1h 10 min away). On the 8th (Mon), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Riga Cathedral, hunt for treasures at Central Market (Centraltirgus), and appreciate the history behind Freedom Monument (Brivibas Piemineklis).

For other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Riga trip builder app .

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airport is Riga International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 26°C, and evening lows to 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
