Top 3 of must sees of Riga: Old Town, Art Nouveau district and Riga Central Market. These should not be missed when in Riga!
1.) The Old Town, for long time having been surrounded by fortification walls, has a unique pattern of cobble-stoned streets and architecture mix of oh-so-different times. Most of the ghosts of Riga also live there, each having its own legend to tell ;)
2.) After leveling down the fortifications in the middle of 19th century, the city extended to lovely parks in the Circle of Boulevards and got some fantastic Art Nouveu architecture. Actually so much of it like nowhere else in Europe! And pretty various too.
3.) What is common between zeppelins and Riga Central Market? Recycling the WWI zeppelin hangars it was built and is loaded with local goods. Opened every day and visited by locals for everyday shopping. The "belly" of Riga!
Of course that is not all from Riga, but this is what makes the Top 3 of must sees in Riga.
