48 hours in Riga, Latvia

48 hours in Riga, Latvia

Latvia was my first visit to a Baltic country, and it didn't disappoint. Its capital, Riga, is the biggest city in the region and one of the most interesting cities in the north of Europe for a short break. From a beautiful medieval Old Town to one of the best Art Nouveau architecture in the world, Riga was a big surprise and I enjoyed every single moment that I spent in there.

Here is what you can expect to see if you have 48h to spend in the Latvian capital!
