This is an ideal full day tour wonderfully combining the captivating history of Latvian capital Riga and an escape to the golden sands of Jurmala, only a 30-minute drive from the busy city life.
During this program...
You will start your day with getting acquainted to the legendary medieval past and promising future of capital city Riga. Our guided drive will take you to the most important highlights from city center boulevards to the irresistible beauty of lavishly decorated Art Nouveau district right in the heart of the town. You will have a chance to admire the Latvian Opera, Daugava riverbank and Riga University with the Bastion Hill.
During the old town walking tour, we will revel in the charm of medieval architecture and inviting atmosphere. Our stroll through the oldest parts of the town will take us to the Small and Great Guild, Dome Cathedral, Riga Castle and St. Jacob’s Church. The wonderful signs from times of hanseatic trade to recent hardship have merged into a delightful harmony in a city appreciated both by visitors and locals alike.
Leaving behind the lively city scene, we are then heading out towards the stunning Baltic Sea coastline. Once in the picturesque town of Jurmala, a medley of architectural styles in the town center is upstaged by the kilometers of spectacular white sandy beaches. Jurmala gained its reputation and popularity as a desired holiday destination already in the 18th century. The contrast of 100 year old wooden houses and quiet tree lined streets with Soviet era eyesores does not end there. You will also have a chance to take some time to enjoy the bustling main street of the town lined with cafés and small shops to take the most out of your time.
After some free time for lunch and a relaxing afternoon getting to know this Baltic pearl, we will return to Riga and end the tour at the cruise harbor, where you can comfortably board your ship.
