About Riga, Latvia

Latvia is the central country of the Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) and is located in North-Eastern Europe on the East coast of the Baltic Sea. Latvia is bordered by Estonia to the north, Russia to the east, Lithuania to the south and the Baltic Sea to the west. Riga is Latvia's Capitol City. Volvo Cup Junior Grand Prix in Riga

Riga, founded in 1201 is one of the oldest medieval cities in Europe and one of the World’s most important cultural sites. As one of the new stars of the dynamic Baltic Sea Region, Riga has hosted a NATO summit, World Hockey Championship, the Eurovision Song Contest and many other large-scale international events.

Riga was officially founded in 1201, just over eight hundred years ago, as German merchants came over to colonize the Baltic's. By 1282 the city was granted admittance into the powerful Hanseatic trading league of predominantly German towns, allowing Riga to flourish. Since that time Riga has been a free town, part of the Polish-Lithuanian kingdom, part of the Swedish empire, part o fthe Russian empire and part of the USSR. This has always led to Riga being a cosmopolitan and ethnically diverse town. Volvo Cup Junior Grand Prix in Riga

Riga’s International Airport is one of the fastest growing travel hubs in Europe. Riga is in fact the largest city of the Baltic states, despite a relatively small population of 800,000. It has a large Old Town (Vecriga), which stretches alongside the Daugava river, and boasts a number of historic monuments, the most striking of which are the Doms Cathedral and St. Peter's Church; whilst the area of Riga referred to locals simply as 'the center' is famous for it's Art Nouveau (Jugendstil) architecture.
