In more than 800 years of its life, Riga has sprawled from a small settlement on a riverbank to a lively, vibrant, multi-layered metropolis. The capital of Latvia is the largest city in Baltic states and one of the most important culture and finance centers in Northern and Eastern Europe. Guests who visit Riga by either air, land or sea find themselves in a city where many different periods of its history are still palpable and coexist in streets, architecture, languages, cuisine, traditions and, most importantly, people. The picturesque old town with its Medieval buildings and magnificent churches, the splendid Silent Centre district with the most dense collection of exquisite Art Nouveau buildings in the world, the Central Market, the National Library building, the Moscow district and the riverside promenade are just a few of the many attractions that tourists and other guests of the city tend to fall in love with. While the majority of Riga's most important sights are in a walking distance from each other and are included in most guided tours, a few places worth visiting require taking a bus or a tram. Riga has a good public transport system with buses, trams and trains, and taxi services are competing to provide the cheapest offer.
The tour is happening every day at 12.00 o'clock from Rainis monument in Esplanade. The tour goes through art nouveau district, park lane, a little bit of old town and finishes at Freedom monument after two hours.
