Three Brothers, Riga

Old Town Riga is only a small part of the Latvian capital city, but it is rich with history. Famous landmarks that serve as symbols of Riga can be found here, including Riga Cathedral and the House of Blackheads.

While in Old Town Riga, shops selling traditional souvenirs and restaurants serving Latvian food are prevalent. Be sure to try the Riga Black Balsam, a liqueur famous for its deep color, unique flavor, and formidable proof.
