Latvia, one of the Baltic States of northeastern Europe, is steeped in history. Tourists interested in absorbing a rich but little-known culture will enjoy traveling and sightseeing throughout Latvia.
One of the more unique ways to see the capital city of Riga is to rent a Segway. Tourists will enjoy seeing the sights using this unusual mode of transportation, which allows for better exploration of the local area. Participants can opt to have a personal tour guide accompany them on this side trip if they wish.
Another way to see Riga is with a hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour by bus. Participants can see castles, churches and cathedrals, historical buildings and monuments, and both modern and medieval neighborhoods. Tourists can hop off at each site to take pictures and explore these popular attractions, then hop back on to continue the tour.
A walking tour of Riga is also available. Participants will have the services of a professional tour guide to show them the gems of the city. These gems include St. Peter's Church, the Central Market, the Sun Museum, Riga Cathedral, and the Latvia National Opera.
Another site of importance in Latvia is the town of Sigulda. This town is found in a breathtaking valley and is known for its pastoral beauty. Tourists can explore Turaida Castle, the town squares, and nearby Gutmana Cave on electromobiles, which provide better access to these locations.
