In addition, I will show you the narrowest street in Riga, the restored masterpiece of medieval architecture - the house of the Brotherhood of Blackheads - and the Swedish Gate, the only ones preserved in the system of city fortifications
New Riga By the 19th century, Riga had emerged from the tight bondage of the fortress - the construction of expensive tenement houses, picturesque parks and majestic temples began. The former moat became a city canal, a resting place for residents of Riga. You will see the main attractions of the Boulevard Ring: the Freedom Monument, the Nymph Fountain, the Opera House, the Orthodox Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ, the Bastion Hill and the Barclay de Tolly Monument. Finally, I will recommend cafes and places to explore on your own.
At your request, we can additionally include a tour of the Dome Cathedral and the Cross Gallery. Specify details in a personal message.
