Það sem verður gert

Amazing opportunity to see Russian side of Riga. Moscow's suburb is well known for it's authenticity and "off the popular route" experience. For many centuries from this area started main road that led to Moscow, connected those big trading cities. Also in beginning of 20th century Jewish ghetto was located in this area.
Mixing Soviet, Orthodox and Riga Wooden architecture - there are lot of stories to tell.
There is only one tunnel to cross from Touristic Old town to not so well known authentic suburb.
We will visit:
> Meeting point is where Riga was announced as City in year of 1208 and will hear a short story how it has been developed until today.
>Riga Central Market - build in 1930-ties in form of Zeppelin still attracts the most traders and buyers for local delicatessens .
>Latvian Academy of Science Building with its unique Soviet architecture, we will enter the building for Panorama view on 17th Floor.
>Russian Orthodox Churches - where farmers meet Russian aristocracy.
>Wooden working class living houses build in end of 19th-century.
>Colorful Graffiti Wall under the Bridge that connects Moscow's street with central Riga.
>Old Jewish Ghetto of Riga
> Return to center with Soviet style tram

Staðsetning

We will visit District of Riga that is called after region that it is closest - Moscow district. Long known as town were Russians, Latvians, Jews and Old Believers stayed. It has plenty of character where early 20th-century art-nouveau masterpieces mingle with traditional 19th-century working class wooden homes. Different Churches and faiths together with Soviet housing.

I had a great time on Leva’s tour - the covered market was fascinating to walk round, we saw loads of views of the city, brilliant buildings, graffiti. She’s an excellent guide and as well as seeing a more unusual side of Riga I also gained a much better understanding of life under soviet rule and the history of Latvia more broadly. Highly recommended.
