Riga, the beautiful capital of Latvia, is located on the banks of the Daugava River. This city is the largest and also the greenest town in the Baltic states. Although the official language is Latvian, Russian is still the mother tongue of over half of Riga's population. Riga is divided into New Town and Old Town, which are separated by a beautiful park with a canal. Due to its numerous monumental and classical buildings and magnificent art nouveau facades, the historic district of Riga is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The political, economical and cultural life takes place in both Riga's Old Town and New Town. Visitors will find here an ancient castle, the opera house, theatre, restaurants, cafés, bars, the 'Saeima' parliament building, shops and a large market. The most impressive building can be found in the old part of Riga - the Cathedral. It is the largest religious building in the Baltic countries and was built in 1211.
