What you'll do

Riga Old City is a part of UNESCO and has many beautiful sights. During this excursion we will talk about historical things, which actually happened and about different legends to which people believed, because they can be funny, sad and also entertaining. We will talk about the establishment of the city, why milk was used instead of water to put out fires, why there are different animals in the Old City and discuss few other legends. We will talk about traditions of Christmas and Midsummer festival, as well as we will try some local snacks. Our excursion will be around 2 hours long. You can order this excursion also in Russian, but as it is not possible to do it bilingual, please contact me and we will find the solution for you. /О возможностях провести экскурсию на русском пожалуйста пишите.

I`m a certified guide in Riga city and being guide in this city is a pure pleasure. Previously I have worked as a guide also in Cesis and in Liepaja. Riga is the city which I love and I like to discover new angles of it everyday. I am a passionate traveler myself (26 countries so far), so I understand that travelers are looking for a unique experience. I love to read and I have always enjoyed history, architecture, arts, so I have many stories about that in Riga. My daily work is connected with marketing, so I have a very good knowledge what is going on in various areas in Latvia - economics, culture, society etc., which gives additional value to my excursions.
