Captivating historic heritage
Eight hundred years of history has left Riga with a unique, well-preserved architectural heritage. Not only does the Latvian capital offer a magnificent medieval city centre, it is also the home to the largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world! Together with the city’s more recent history as a part of the Soviet Union, Riga can offer a wide range of unusual, historical venues unlike anything you would find elsewhere in the world.
With Baltic’s busiest airport, located only 30 minutes from the city centre and with direct flight from almost hundred international cities, Riga can easily be reached from all corners of the world. Furthermore, Riga is compact enough to be enjoyed by foot, minimizing the travel times between hotel, venues and tourist sights.
Great selection of things to do
Although relatively small for a capital city, Riga offers as wide a range of activities for incentives in Riga and culture as any huge metropolis. Exquisite cuisine, fancy bars, a notoriously wild nightlife, unique day and nighttime activities, high-class SPA centers as well as beautiful nature and 22 km of white sand beaches less than an hour away.

3 must see’s in Riga
1) Riga Old Town
Reason: Riga’s UNESCO-listed Old Town is a fabulous place to spend time, it’s architecture reflecting the changing styles and eras of the city as a whole. For more information about Riga Old Town click here.
2) Embassy / Art Nouveau District
Reason: Riga boasts the largest collection of Art Nouveau buildings in the world. Many art nouveau buildings were designed by Latvian architects, the most famous of whom was Mikhail Eisenstein. The concentration and quality of art nouveau architecture is most impressive in the Embassy District, along Elizabetes and Alberta streets.
Reason: Sigulda and its surrounding area are routinely referred to as ‘Latvia’s Switzerland’. While it’s undeniably picturesque, the description also proves that Latvians do have a nice line in self deprecating humour. Where Switzerland is on a grand scale, Sigulda is intimate. But Sigulda can more than match Switzerland for castles, with two large ones staring at each other across the Gauja river valley and the ruins of others hidden in the thick forests around.
Riga incentive ideas and Team Building Activities
1) City snakes and ladders with iPads
Reason: City Snakes and Ladders is perfect for ending a workshop or training day in Riga, since it is a combination of team training, knowledge and a great way to get to know your colleagues better. The game is also a good way to get to know Riga’s sights and attractions in an unusual way.
2) Curling competition
Reason: Curling is actually one of our most popular winter activities in Riga, it is a great way to fuel the competitive streak in your colleagues in a friendly and sporting fashion. Riga has excellent facilities for this activity and we always enjoy hosting incentives in Riga at the the Curling hall! Why not combine with a bobsleigh experience?
3) Private river boat tour with dinner
Reason: A great way to see the city, complete with catering, drinks and entertainment the River Boat Party will give your guests or employees a chance to relax and take in the wonderful sights that Riga has to offer.
