Street envy and much more!

Street envy and much more!

Our second day in Riga started with a free walking tour by Andis from We were a group of about 20 people. Our tour started at Alberta square and from there we walked through narrowed cobbled stoned streets and saw different types of buildings from old churches to old houses and museums. We also went to a few parks such as Kronvalda park and Bastejkalna Park and I must say that they are worth the visit.

Our last day was spent at the St. Peter’s Church where we had a chance to see a panoramic view of the city. The lift of the church runs every 10minutes and will bring you up to the tower. Make sure you wear warm clothes as when we went it was very windy.

We also walked around Albert iela, Elizabetes iela and Strelnieuku street and saw different Art Nouveau buildings. They were all gorgeous and beautiful- worth bringing the camera!
