Officially founded in 1201

Riga, the capital of Latvia, was officially founded in 1201. It is the metropolitan centre not only for the country, but also for the whole Baltic region. Riga is best known for its architectural legacy – the Old Town of Riga is listed in UNESCO’s prestigious World Heritage List.

With its 800 year history, Riga has been made up of buildings from the Middle Ages and subsequent periods of Swedish, Polish, Russian and Germany influence.

Due to its strategic position by the river Daugava and the Baltic Sea, Riga has always acted as a trading centre and a link between East and West. Riga used to be the largest Swedish city and the industrial centre of the Russian Empire.

But Riga is much more than its history – today it’s one of Europe’s most dynamic and rapidly developing cities. Proud of its heritage, it is a thoroughly modern city with a highly developed infrastructure and rich opportunities for different activities and entertainment.
