We’ll leave the port by coach to reach the city centre of Riga. Our shore excursion starts in the spectacular historic centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, noted for its Art Nouveau and 19th century wooden architecture.

We’ll admire the religious architecture of St. Peter’s Church, Riga Cathedral and the Church of Santiago. Then, the Latvian National Opera House and the greenery of Bastejkalns Park.

Not far away are the Three Brothers Houses; three buildings which each characterize a different architectural style. The first, built in the 15th century, has Gothic decorations. The second shows influences from Dutch Mannerism. The third house displays the Baroque style and is today the Latvian Museum of Architecture.

Our Riga shore excursion continues with a visit to the splendid façade of the House of the Blackheads. Next we’ll see the Freedom Monument, a 42metre high memorial to those killed in the Latvian War of Independence.

We’ll finish the shore excursion with an outside visit to Riga Castle. This fairytale structure sits on the river banks and today is the official residence of the President of Latvia.
