Jewish city tour of Riga, the Hidden Gem of the Baltic
Hosted By: Qesher
Join this virtual walking tour of Riga, once dubbed the ‘Paris of the North’. Latvia’s capital is an architectural gem of gothic, renaissance, baroque and Art Nouveau buildings, and its Old Town was declared a UNESCO Heritage site in 1997.
The Jewish history of Riga reaches as far back as the 13th century, but it wouldn’t be for at least 200 more years that Jews would make an economic impact. In the late 1920s, Riga even became the center of the global Lubavitch movement . Come and discover this hidden gem with us.
