Guided tour around the Town Hall
Municipality of Riga
Riga has been the city of inspiration for more than
800 years. It has always attracted travellers, urging them to linger,
remain or return. Since Riga regained its historical status as one
of the capital cities of Europe, more and more Europeans and
citizens from other parts of the world are succumbing to its
Riga is a modern cosmopolitic metropolis with a rich
cultural and historical heritage which is evident in the city’s
architecture, cultural life, as well as in its rapid urban
development and active cooperation with other cities. The aim of the
city administration is to turn Riga into an active and competitive
educational and cultural centre that is healthy and safe. We aim to
develop a highly efficient city administration, and to preserve Riga
as a green city by constructing new and modern buildings. We want
the City of Riga to continue to serve as the driving force of
Latvia’s economy, and we want the city to be easily accessible to
everyone – by land, rail, sea or air.
I hope that the city’s residents and guests will draw
inspiration from the rich history and dynamic development of the
City of Riga!
