On this tour, we will see the most famous sites in old Town, including the House of Blackheads, St. Peter's Church, Doma Cathedral, the Three Brothers, and the Cat House (no, not what you're thinking!)


It's a grand tale of Christian crusaders and stubborn pagans, merchants and bricklayers, conquering generals and heroic peacemakers. And we'll also look at intriguing mysteries... Why did a blacksmith invent Riga's famous Black Balsam? Why are roosters perched on top of the churches? Are there really blue cows in Latvia?
