    Riga is a beautiful Baltic city which has been on the tourism map for a few years now. The historical centre of Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Any trip to Riga should start with a walking tour around its old town. The art nouveau buildings and cobbled streets take travellers back in time. While in the old town, do not miss seeing The Three Brothers which is the oldest building in Riga and House of the Blackheads. There is also Albert street a few blocks away from the Old town which has a selection of some of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Riga also has many museums that will give tourists a glimpse into the various facets of its history.  The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia has been built on the theme of educating people about the 51 year period in the 21st century when Riga was occupied by the USSR, followed by Nazi Germany and then again USSR. The Riga Art Nouveau Centre is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys art nouveau architecture. The museum is located in the apartment of a famous art nouveau architect -  Konstantīns Pēkšēns which was later occupied by a painter and also by a writer. For a panoramic view of this beautiful city, go to St. Peter’s Church in the old town. An elevator will take you to the top of the tower from where you can get sweeping views of the city.
