Riga, the capital of Latvia, was officially founded in 1201. It is the metropolitan centre not only for the country, but also for the whole Baltic region. Riga is best known for its architectural legacy – the Old Town of Riga is listed in the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list. Due to its strategic position, Riga has always acted as a trading centre and a link between East and West. Today Riga is one of Europe's most dynamic and rapidly developing cities with a wide range of classy restaurants, trendy bars and quality shopping.
