Tour description

The Riga Hidden Gems Free Tour takes us to the outskirts of Old Riga in the part we call Center . How about discovering Riga through hidden gems? On our way we will see the Art Nouveau architecture , the circular boulevard, the city parks, important historical monuments and places of current importance .
Much of our tour will also be interesting stories about people who have made a substantial effort in the development of our city.
City that has been influenced by Baltic Germans, Latvians, Russians, Jews and many other people and cultures.
Many of the things on this tour are hidden gems that even the locals don't know about.
