  • The Museum of the Occupation
  • the Monument of the Latvian Rifleman
  • The Deportation memorial


If you are to really understand Riga, you have to experience its past filled both with happiness and sorrow. During this tour we will turn back the wheel of time. Only a few decades ago Riga looked, spoke and thought absolutely differently – in line with Soviet ideas. Even today, the city preserves the symbols of that time – the Monument of the Latvian Riflemen and the Occupation Museum, the Academy of Sciences and the restored Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ, which used to be the home of a planetarium.The guides of this tour will share their memories and private stories about living under the Communist regime.
