Latvia Cruise Deals
When you step off your cruise ship in the Latvian capital of Riga, you are on the verge of discovering one of Northern Europe’s booming tourist destinations. Besides being the largest city in the Baltic States and its geographical centre, it is also the unrivalled cultural capital of the area. Cultural festivals such as the summer solstice celebrations or the annual Riga City Festival occupy a large part of the city’s tourist calendar, and there is a feast of museums, historical sites and architectural treasures. If you want to take to the water, there are river cruises operating from the Akmens Bridge that give you a wonderful view of the city and the river islands. You can travel beyond the city and enjoy the loveliest beaches on the Baltic coast, from Kurzeme Beach, 200 km from Riga, to Jurmala, a half hour’s drive along the coast.
