Riga is the capital of Latvia and the largest city in the country, with a population of over 717,000. It is a dynamic city that is constantly developing and changing and is the political, economic and cultural centre of Latvia.

The city has a beautiful medieval Old Town, with a labyrinth of cobblestone streets and a wide range of cafés for you to enjoy. Riga has the largest collection of 19th and 20th century “Art Nouveau” buildings in Europe. But the city is not just about history, old buildings and museums. It is also a modern, vibrant city with a rich cultural and social scene.

Riga is also known as “the city of inspiration”, and we strongly believe that it could offer you an equally inspiring and fulfilling university life. If you choose to continue your education in this city, you are guaranteed a unique experience. You will meet new people and learn new traditions, new cultures and a different way of life.

Like many other people who have visited the city, we truly believe that Riga is a wonderful place to live. For more information on the city of Riga, including places of interest and things to do, please continue to browse the other sections of the website.
