Day 1 - Riga

Independent arrival in Riga

Check-in at the hotel

Riga is situated by the southern coast of the Gulf of Riga, by the Baltic Sea. Latvia’s largest river - Daugava flows through the city. Riga was founded by German merchants in 1201, and it has been a Hanseatic town. Here, in Riga, on November 18, 1918 the Republic of Latvia was proclaimed. The Historic Centre of Riga is a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage.

The centre of Riga next to the Old Town attracts with its spacious parks. In spring, when the leaves open, they have a unique bouquet of scents. In summer the parks are a good place to hide from the heat. In autumn the parks turn into an incredible mixture of colours, while the heaps of snow in winter will please children. Latvian National Opera is situated in the Opera park and will surprise ballet and opera lovers with world class performances. The nearby Riga Central Market has spacious pavilions once built for military purposes and is a great place to have a taste of the delicious products from Latvian countryside. A short walking distance further you will find Spīķeri with a chamber music hall, several exhibition halls, as well as restaurants and bars.

Tallinn Old Town is one of the best preserved Hanseatic town centres in the world. A stone’s throw away you’ll find the city’s business centre with modern towers and luxurious hotels, trendy neighbourhoods and large shopping centres. Tallinn’s luring coastline is dotted with promenades and sandy beaches and is especially rewarding during the summer, however it still offers scenic views of the iconic cityscape throughout the year.
