Riga is already a venue for cultural events on an international scale, but in 2014 it will become the cultural epicenter of Europe. During its year as European Capital of Culture, hundreds of special events will take place – culture in the very broadest sense. 365 days a year, with a new understanding of culture as a positive force of change in people’s lives.

What’s worth experiencing in Riga, in the view of Master Chef Mārtiņš Rītiņš

Riga – A place where centuries meet
Riga streets bear its over 800-year-long history: the many centuries and rulers, Art Nouveau architecture and Modernism, wooden buildings and masonry, streets aligned with beautiful patio umbrellas. Yet the city is still young and its cultural & historic environment blends with diverse contemporary events. Legend has it that Riga will never be finished… Riga is a city that lives and develops.
