Hotel and restaurant in town. This sophisticated hotel, ideally located next to Saint-Olaf’s church, right in the heart of a city that combines medieval charm with hectic modern living, enjoys a tranquil setting in the old town.

The contemporary décor is the perfect foil for magnificently-restored period features, such as the ceiling frescoes rediscovered under 14 layers of wallpaper and the wooden crane used to hoist supplies into the house. Restaurant Bordoo is the perfect place for a late breakfast, a leisurely lunch or a gourmet dinner. ... Learn moreless

With its bricks and stones, it is one of the most famous façades in the city. The House of the Blackheads is a unique institution in Riga. Built in the 14th century by the Great Guild, the house became the property of an important association of single merchants (the famous Blackheads). As a hall for parties, balls and concerts, it hosted Wagner, Liszt and even Berlioz. The house was devastated during a bombing raid in 1941 and was rebuilt exactly as it was before in the 1990s.
"The general consensus is that the finest concentration of Art Nouveau buildings in Europe is to be found in Riga": These were the words used by UNESCO historians when they added the historical centre of the city to the World Heritage List. Art Nouveau established itself in Riga at the very beginning of the 20th century. The whole city seems to have adopted the movement since then, be it in architecture, interior design, furniture and even clothing fashions! Even today, there are around fifty Art Nouveau buildings in the heart of the medieval city and over three hundred in the rest of the conurbation.
The ideal place for all art lovers!

Few people are aware that the historical centre of Vilnius is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Despite a series of destructions, a number of the historical buildings have retained their Gothic and Baroque style. On the other side of the river, the Uzupis district has retained a bohemian atmosphere which is a delight for artists in the city. Workshops, galleries, squats, and concerts punctuate the daily life in this district that was raised in a "republic". A big party is held to mark the anniversary of its own constitution on 1 April each year!

We can even give you a certificate at its symbolic crossing point!
