Riga, Latvia Overview

Riga is home to a university, the Latvian Academy of Sciences, and to numerous other educational and cultural institutions. The old section, or Hansa town, is circled by a park-lined moat and includes the ancient castle of the Livonian Knights, the 13th century Lutheran cathedral, and the Parliament building. This area, with its narrow, cobbled streets lined with gabled dwellings and warehouses, has retained much of its medieval character.

by Heatherann

Be aware that Royal Caribbean docks 30 minutes away from town and charges $14 to go into town on shuttle busses that we had to wait 30 minutes to arrive. Otherwise Old Town was interesting with curving small streets and lots to see and eat.
