Discreet charm of Latvia: What to do in Riga!

Let’s try to be serious: Latvia is not Lithuania (a neighboring country), and it’s called Letonia in many languages. And it’s certainly not Latveria, the imaginary homeland of Doctor Doom – though we suspect writers did get their inspiration from Latvia. But what’s done is done, and if you ever happen to find yourself in Latvia’s capital Riga thanks to yec.com, here are some things you need to see!

Walk through the Old City

The Sun Museum in Riga is a bit unexpected – but it’s nonetheless quite interesting and pleasant. Dedicated to sun-worship and sun’s role in different cultures, it also has a bit of astronomy in the mix, so you’ll be rewarded with a nice two hour stay!
