Map of Riga region

  • 56.94888924.1063891 Riga The capital city of Latvia and the European Capital of Culture in 2014 with a long history.
  • 57.1524.86671 Sigulda A town in central Latvia with many interesting castles and historic points of interest. Probably, the most popular destination outside of Riga for foreign tourists, also due to its closeness.
  • 56.966723.751 Jūrmala A popular holiday and sea resort town with wooden houses just west of Riga, which claims to have the longest beach in Northern Europe.
  • 56.966723.151 Tukums A town some 70 km west of Riga. Not that exciting, but known for its affinity with roses, the Rose Festival, and the nearby Cinevilla, a dummy city and now theme park.
