DAY 2: RIGA - JURMALA - RIGA

Visit Art Nouveau district (1,5-2hrs)

Riga is like a museum of architecture, covering periods from Gothic to Classicism. But the real treasure of the city is the largest and best-preserved collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world. This fact was corroborated by UNESCO in 1997 and now the central section of Riga is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Riga is sometimes called the "capital" of Art Nouveau thanks to the heritage of 800 buildings of Art Nouveau.
The exteriors of the Art Nouveau buildings are imaginatively decorative and won`t leave guests incurious or without an opinion.

Continue with a private tour to Jurmala - a famous seaside resort situated only 20 km from Riga. The natural curative features of this place were already well known more than 150 years ago. Nowadays endless golden beaches, Baltic Sea, salubrious air and the unique beauty of pine forests attract tourists. Jurmala is a cosy European town composed of houses plunged into the parks and forests. Here you can come across wooden country houses from the beginning of the 20th century as well as modern cottages.
Surrounded by pine trees, the wooden cottages of Jurmala are unique monuments of cultural heritage; in which Classicism, Art Nouveau, National Romanticism and Functionalism harmoniously co-exist. This place is a must for those who are planning to visit Latvia in spring or summer.
Return in Riga in the afternoon. Free time for leisure.
