After visiting Tallinn, I headed south to the next Baltic state – Latvia. My stay in Latvia was only two days long, so I was only able to pay a visit to Riga, the capital city. Although Riga is quite small compared to most other capital cities, every inch of its old town its extremely well maintained. I spent most my time in Riga admiring the historic Renaissance and Art Nouveau architecture that this city is known for.
Riga’s Old Town Square.
The Swedish Gate.
The Get Smart Cafe served me the best milkshake I’ve ever had.
The House of Blackheads.
Stunning view of Old Town from the top of St. Peter’s Church.
