The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Latvia

Riga is the capital city of Latvia and home to half a million people.

Most people come only to Riga for a long weekend, so that’s where we have decided to focus our attention. The city itself is right at the mouth of the river River Daugava on the Baltic Sea.

It’s a city full of charm, gorgeous old buildings and interesting culture.  What’s not to love?

You’ll want some amazing photos from the trip here so we’ve rounded up the 7 best Latvia Instagram spots

1. The view from St Peter’s Church

The old town is what Riga is all about and you’ll find no better way to appreciate it than from the view on this observation deck.

You’ll find info about opening hours here.

You’ll get an iconic shot here. You’ll find more info about the building here.
