Bustling Riga

 

Latvia’s capital city is truly a central hub for culture and history. The Old Town is a great place to learn about Riga’s long history and start your stroll towards the Art Nouveau District, where you can let yourself be amazed with the architecture. If you can’t get enough of the views, head to St Peter’s church to experience the city from above. Don’t miss the unique Sun museum, where you can find out more about Latvians and their traditions, or having a sip of Riga Black Balsam, an authentic and strong alcoholic drink made with liquor and vodka.

Turaida Castle

Enchanting castles 

 

If you’re craving river panoramas, enchanting forest trails, mysterious caves and medieval castles, look no further than Sigulda. It’s located on the edge of Gauja National Park and offers countless opportunities to escape the crowds and appreciate the stunning views in peace. There are 3 castles in the area, with Turaida probably being the most beautiful one. From there reaching the Gutman’s Cave, the highest one in the Baltics, is also the easiest.

Dark history and prison cells 

 

Liepāja is definitely one of Latvia’s most interesting destinations. The city has turned its dark history into a more interactive concept and places such as the Karosta Prison Museum are not to be missed. Its convenient location at the Baltic sea has resulted in many beautiful white sand beaches to rewind after embracing the city’s historical past. For true adventure seekers, there is the unique opportunity to stay overnight at one of the Karosta's prison cells!

Latvia's hidden gem 

 

Even though it’s the second largest city in Latvia, most people still skip it for Riga, which makes Daugavpils the perfect hidden gem. The remarkable fortress, survived both World War I and II, is one of the city’s most well-known attractions, although the impressive architecture and bustling culture also make it a suitable destination for travellers. Church hill is certainly Daugavpils’ most beautiful place, featuring various picturesque churches.

Latvia's favourite castle

 

Cesis is a true bliss for all the history fans out there as visitors can explore 800 years of history and tales. Some of its districts are one of the best-preserved ones in the whole country and there are many cobblestone streets, beautifully painted facades, churches and courtyards that can give you a medieval feeling even though it’s the 21st century. The town’s most distinguishable piece is probably the Cesis Castle, which is also one of the most popular attractions to be photographed in Latvia.
