Riga Holidays Overview

 

The capital of Latvia, Riga combines a cosmopolitan big city atmosphere with quaint cobbled streets, and a historic old town. Like the rest of Latvia, Riga is determined to shed its austere Soviet image and has developed a vibrant, energetic restaurant and bar scene alongside its fairytale castles and churches.
 
The largest city in the Baltics, Riga has a population of almost 800,000 with roughly 40% of Latvian origin, and 40% of Russian origin. It straddles the Daugava River and is situated about 15km inland from the Gulf of Riga coastline.
 
Riga was badly damaged during both world wars, but between the two it became an intellectual and cultural centre, nicknamed ‘Little Paris’ as Western diplomats, journalists and spies used it to get close to Stalin’s Soviet Union. Forming part of the former USSR, Riga became an industrial and commercial powerhouse after World War II, producing rolling stock, washing machines, mopeds, trams, and computers.
