Take a stroll around the area and you can encounter various museums, churches and other historic buildings. Close to this part of town is the Riga Central Market, where you can haggle for artisan and locally-made goods.
Hotels in or near Old Riga typically possess a similar historic past as the rest of the area. Although their exteriors may portray an ancient style, their interiors combine modern luxuries with antique beauty. The 5-Star Dome Hotel and Spa, the Hotel Justas or the Kolonna Hotel Riga are a few of the hotels you can stay at.
Riga is a city of stunning architecture, but some of that beauty comes from the natural and green expanses of its parks. The Esplanade is one of the most popular greenscapes in the city, being centrally located and almost nine hectares. Located within the Esplanade is the Art Academy of Latvia.
