History of Latvia

Wooden Riga

Riga is famous for its architecture of wooden buildings. Riga is a city where old and modern materials coexist side by side, with diverse streetscapes, attractive interplay of light and shade and urban chaos. Riga has the highest concentration of wooden architecture of any European capital.  Excellent examples of architectural fantasies in wood can be found all over the city. Riga and Latvia have historically always had access to high-quality timber. In Riga the excellent traditions of Russian craftsmanship met with the best of Western architectural building traditions. A must for lovers of wooden architecture is Kipsala Island.
