Full description
Private Medieval Tales of Old Town is one of the most popular tours, and a superb introduction to this place of rich with the opulent beauty of medieval history.

Like any other medieval city, old Riga has inspired many legends. Earlier, the huge giant Kristaps carried a child over the Daugava on his shoulders and received for this act a bag of gold coins, a legend that tells the city of Riga was built for this money.

How many mysteries hide behind the walls of Riga? Who built Riga, what kind of trick did Bishop Albert use, what is the church cook for Riga, who whispers in St George’s Church? Do you wish to hear other legends and stories about the houses and cities of old Riga? You will learn these and many more mysterious tales by walking in the narrow streets and yards of the 800-year-old Riga.
