If you have never been to Riga before, it is worth arriving couple of days ahead of the Summer School or staying few days longer. Riga has been named one of European Best Destinations and there is plenty to see and do. Architecture fans won’t be able to resist a breath-taking range of architectural styles in the historical centre of Riga while art lovers will find plenty of museums, including recently reopened Latvian National Museum of Art. Foodies will surely be able to embark on journey of gastronomical adventures but those looking for something alternative can visit Riga’s Hipster Neighbourhood in Miera Street.
