Paris of the North

Venture out of the city with trips to Cesis (Cesis Medieval Castle & Ancient Jewellery Smithy). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Riga Ghetto and Latvian Holocaust Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Peter's Church, examine the collection at Riga Motormuseum, and contemplate the long history of Salaspils Memorial Ensemble.
