    I have been to the excursion around old Riga with local travel company Latatlas (http://www.latatlas.lv) guide.The excursion was about 2 hours long, we liked the atmosphere of the Old Town, the famous Cat House, the medieval dwelling house complex Three Brothers that has elements of first advertisment and a lot of other interesting sights.

    I feel biased, I grew up in Riga but many years later I miss the Old Town - narrow cobble stone streets full of cafes and bars. Take your camera and go exploring and don't forget your jacket even in the summer.

    Stayed in Old Riga for five weeks and it was the best! Beautiful architecture, cobblestone streets, and one of the safest neighborhoods I've ever wandered. I was even confident wandering around by myself day or night. The roads can be a bit confusing so I would recommend using a map or gps. But once you have the streets figured out, you'll find quick shortcuts to get where you need to be!

    Must see! Небольшая по площади, но за день ознакомиться со всем, пожалуй, просто невозможно. Для ознакомления с городом лучше воспользоваться услугами профессиональных гидов. Экскурсии начинаются от здания Братства Черноголовых на Ратушной Площади. Поверьте, это стоит своих денег. Незабываемые впечатления.

    If you're looking for tasty, original meal, drop in «XL Pelmeņi», Kaļķu 7 in Old Town (opposite ILPatio restaurant). The set of a bowl of meat dumplings with cream, dressing, original sause will cost 2-3Ls http://www.xlpelmeni.lv

    Cobblestone streets, beautiful old churches, rows of cafe's...

    I wandered aimless around the Old Town Riga. I loved looking at the old buildings as they were well maintained and absolutely beautiful. There were a lot of great shops whether it be storefront or little outdoor booths. The Baltic region is known for amber so I did get some good deals on beautiful green amber.

    In the center of old town there was a bar where a live band was playing really upbeat music. People were just sitting around listening to the music while sipping on their beer. It was such a relaxing sight to see. It was awesome!
