Often referred to as "The Paris of the North," Riga offers thriving nightlife and some of the best collections of Art Nouveau architecture in Europe.
Change things up with a short trip to Salaspils Memorial Ensemble in Salaspils (about 34 minutes away). On the 5th (Fri), enjoy a perfect day by the water at Jurmala Beach. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Old City Riga (Vecriga), take in the spiritual surroundings of Riga Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Latvijas Okupācijas muzejs, and explore the galleries of Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum.

To see photos, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Riga trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airport is Riga International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Riga are 13°C, while nighttime lows are 2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 11th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
