But, of course, numerous tourists coming to the capital of Latvia are not attracted by this fact, but by its many sights. And some of the travelers are going to combine sightseeing and gambling recreation, as gambling houses are legalized in the country, and network units like Storm International by Michael Boettcher are working.

Tourist Holiday in Riga

Rest in Riga is an opportunity to see such architecture‘s masterpieces as the Church of St. Peter, the Dome Cathedral and the Cathedral of St. James, built respectively in 1209, 1211 and 1225.

But this is only a small fraction of what can be seen in Riga. There is the Riga Castle here, which is now the residence of the country’s President, the Powder Tower, the House of Blackheads, and many other interesting sights.

It can be Vermansky Park - the oldest park in the city, and Victory Park, famous for its landscape design, and Viestura Garden, founded by Peter I.
