Description

The tour begins with a visit to Riga’s historical centre. Thanks to its rich cultural heritage, the Old Town provides a fascinating overview of Latvian history. During this part of the tour you’ll also visit the beautiful Riga Synagogue.

Just next to the Old Town is the Moscow District, named after the former trading route to the Russian capital. It has housed the iconic and colourful Central Market since the 1930s. The tour will take you through the market to the site of the former Riga Ghetto, now a quiet suburb, as well as to the Ghetto Museum. Its exhibitions document the history of Latvia’s Jewish community during the 20th century.

The final destination will be the elegant Art Nouveau District. This style shaped Riga in the early 20th century, creating a whole new approach to architecture and decorating the city’s buildings with fascinating creatures and mystical symbols.

Excellent introduction to Art Nouveau
Agrita was an excellent guide and really gave us a great overview of the Art Nouveau district, as well as furnishing us with lots of interesting facts about the city and the history of Latvia. Can't recommend enough.
Informative & Friendly!
My husband and I booked a walking tour with Edvards for Sunday morning. He picked us up from the hotel and let us know about the area we were staying in. He continued the tour for about 2 hours, even going a bit beyond Old Town Riga to help us explore the city, while providing a lot of historical and architectural information along the way. Edvards' English was perfect and we could tell he was really interested in all things Riga.
very good
In a short time we get all information about Riga. Thank you Dita.
Great tour
Met our guide Anete at the appointed time and she quickly made us feel at ease. The Old tour is great for learning about the history of Riga but also for getting your bearings.
Her English is good and she can understand and answer questions without problem.
Would thoroughly recommend this tour to visitors of Riga
