Riga, Latvia

Photos to Inspire Your Next Trip

Modern yet historic, Riga is the perfect mix of old and new. This European capital recently came onto the tourist radar after Latvia and its Baltic neighbors broke free of communism and joined up with the E.U.

Now Riga offers old European charm at a respectably lower price than its western European counterparts. Here you can dine at an outdoor cafe while admiring the old-world architecture, visit art museums, stroll through local markets, and take an excursion to the idyllic European countryside.

If you think it's too good to be true, then these photos will show how Riga's elegant and authentic atmosphere should be on your bucket list.

Potato and cheese dumplings are popular here, and you can actually get them at some fast-food style restuarants.
