For a great day trip out of Riga, catch local bus number 1 to the Ethnographic Open Air Museum (the stop is called Brivdabas Muzejs). Here you can view authentic wooden houses, windmills and farmsteads from all over Latvia set in a beautiful pine forest on Lake Jugla.

Latvia city breaks are ideal for those looking for an enchanting and memorable time in a well-preserved, fairytale European city that remains relatively free of the tourist hordes. With an eclectic mix of architecture, encompassing Gothic, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau styles, set within dramatically beautiful Baltic scenery, Latvia really is a hidden gem that lives long in the memory of any visitor.

A city break in Latvia will inevitably centre on the exciting yet serene capital city of Riga. With its charming, UNESCO-listed, Old Town and labyrinthine cobbled streets dotted with alfresco cafés, exquisite restaurants, ornate shops and bustling markets, it is easy to spend a whole weekend merely soaking up the magical atmosphere of this confident and charismatic city.

However, Riga also offers a cultural and historical experience to rival any city break in Europe. The vast array of Germanic art nouveau buildings is unmatched anywhere in the world, while the Occupation Museum and Freedom Monument provide a glimpse into the Baltic region’s turbulent past. Music fans will find classical music concerts and opera performances running all-year round, with the Riga Opera Festival taking place every June.
