Riga Old Town Walk
Capital of Latvia situated by the Daugava river is not only the biggest city of the country but also one of the biggest and oldest in northern Europe. In 1997 UNESCO declared Riga’s historical centre a World Heritage Site. Today this area on the right bank of Daugava is the heart of the city and very popular tourist destination. During our tour you will discover all its highlights and experience fantastic atmosphere of this relatively small and compact quarter of Riga.
Our guide will meet you at the harbour and from there you will take a very short walk to the Old Town. We will show you there one of the most beautiful buildings in the city – Latvian National Opera House constructed in 19th century and unique building of House of the Blackheads with fantastic ornaments reconstructed in late 1990s. Of course we will not miss one of the oldest monuments – Riga Castle which was founded in 1330. Another important site on our way will be Dome Cathedral well known for its size and large pipe organ. You will also see defensive town walls with Powder Tower and Swedish Gate, building of Latvian Parliament, St Peter’s Church (one of the symbols of Riga), the Freedom Monument and many others sites with interesting architecture and long history.
After the tour you can have some free time in the centre and come back to your ship on your own at chosen time.
