Riga is the largest city in the Baltic States. It is situated on the mouth of the Daugava river..Riga's historical center Old town -?Vecriga? has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the city is famous for its extensive Jugendstil (German Art Nouveau). After dissolution of the Soviet Union, Latvia become independent country in1991.

The old town has one of the most beautiful squares I have ever seen.
In the city there is not metro system, but public transportation is very good, where are operates a large number of trams, buses and trolleybuses. However you can go all around by foot.
Riga is very well connected with other Baltic States Estonia and Lithuania, and also have a good and cheap connection with Russia.
