Many people who haven’t been to Riga even once tend to wonder what this city has to offer. However, once they arrive to the capital of Latvia and make their way to the centre, they become more and more open-eyed, being impressed by the beauty and organic mix of different styles this city has to offer. Riga was always a spot where different cultures met in the Baltic region. And while exploring the city you will see a lot of fascinating places bearing both eastern and western traits, or even something truly unique and modernist. Riga is a very dynamic place that remembers its past but doesn’t stay in it, taking confident steps into the future. And that’s exactly what makes it a great destination for tourists!
My name is Ilze Karlsone and I’m a licensed Riga private tour guide who takes it more than a hobby than a real job. Because enjoying each opportunity to show new visitors how interesting Riga is can’t be called a job. It’s a passion. I really love meeting new people from different countries and taking around the most fascinating and picturesque parts of the city. Whether your interests lie in the domain of history and art, or you’re more into social events and night life, Riga has something for all types of guests - the Old Town, Art Nouveau,Riga Central Market,the wooden architecture,
but if you like to enjoy Segway and to see the highlights of the Old Town also in such a way, you are welcome!
A former Soviet city, Riga features way more influences than its USSR past. You will certainly enjoy its historic centre and the more modern districts rich with shops and clubs. And if Riga feels a bit too small for you, there’s always a possibility to enjoy a tour to other parts of Latvia such as the famous Jurmala resort , Sigulda like the Switzerland of Latvia, Kuldiga,Talsi, Ventspils, the perls of Kurland, the west part of Latvia. This country is really interesting and has so many interesting places to visit outside Riga that you won’t know where to start. Allow me to be your Riga private tour guide and I will help you enjoy the best vacation you could imagine during your stay in Latvia!
