Riga - Latvia

Partnership with Rostock since 1961

Riga is an old Hanseatic city famous for its Art Nouveau buildings, as well as for its well-preserved Old Town. In 2016 the Community of the Protestant Churches in Europe awarded Riga the title of “Reformation Town of Europe”.

The two most essential sights to see in Riga are the House of Black Heads and the Riga Dom. Riga‘s industry is mostly based on wood, chemical and textile industry as well as food processing.
