About Riga, Latvia

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.

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.

Unfortunately the wind was so strong the captain could not get the ship into the narrow channel to dock. Dissappointing as this was one reason for choosing this cruise itinerary.

I almost liked Riga as much as Tallin, however, we were forced to use RCCL as Shore Excursions group didn't offer any tours in Riga. We were not happy with this tour. Way too many people could barely hear our guide, and overall were not impressed by her either.

We enjoyed walking around this quaint city and having lunch. Also enjoyed an organ recital at the large cathedral. Love shopping for amber also.

Another great small city, great to wander around in on your own. You are close to the main area of old town so it is easy to walk around on your own.
