THE OTHER RIGA
04.04.2019

While Riga is known for its medieval Old Town and impressive Art Nouveau district, a completely new Riga has emerged outside the city centre during the last 25 years. Via Hansa & Borealis showed this recently to a group of owners, directors and product mangers of large international companies on a special sightseeing tour. The tour included a visit to the hip Kalnciema Quarter with its golden age wooden architecture and lively Farmers’ and Artisans’ Market, followed by a visit to the ‘Castle of Light’, the new National Library of Latvia, with a guided tour of this impressive building and champagne and canapés on the panoramic top floor, and finally ending with a visit to the Riga Motor Museum with its unique collection of soviet limousines from the Kremlin Garage. Guests who had already previously visited Riga enjoyed these new aspects of the city and left with many ideas about how to offer more contemporary programs for their guests in the future.
