Riga’s Great Cemetery, also known as the Latvian Pantheon, is truly an unrepeatable place, and its enjoyment will appeal to everyone who craves to have fun in talking about prominent personalities and past events.

Riga’s Great Cemetery was created in 1773 and then, over the next two centuries, gradually expanded southwest. This is the last place of rest for historians, noblemen, as well as ordinary people, whose unusual works made them legends. The green and peaceful, old-fashioned island, in the middle of the noisy city, offers the finest details of the graves, monumental chapels, and masterfully destroyed tombstones.

We invite you to join the tour and scroll through the last couple of centuries history pages together.

Guided tour in Latvian.
Meeting place – near the Chapel of James, near Miera Street.

Price: 7 EUR per person

Marupi can be called the cradle of the Soviet military heritage. Strategically important objects were located not only in the border area or in the middle of nowhere away from curious eyes, but sometimes also in the neighborhood. Communication bunker, Airport Riga, Skultes village – all these and other objects were created during the Soviet times, bearing in mind the needs of the military. We offer you to take a look at this new history and go to Marupi, discovering interesting and less known places, objects and their life stories right here on the outskirts of Riga.

The tour is a tour in Latvian. The length of the route is 12 km and the approximate duration is 5 hours. The hike ends in Skulte.

Price: 7 euros per person.

Meeting point: Bus stop “Marupe” on route 25.

Visiting the Forest Cemetery of Riga is like leafing through a book where every page offers a fresh story with new characters. Sometimes the story is more like a comedy, sometimes a drama, but it is always interesting.

The Forest Cemetery was established in 1913 and took up the baton from the Great Cemetery of Riga as the main and the most prestigious final resting place in Riga. With time it grew to be the largest cemetery in Latvia, and the list of prominent people buried there does not seem to have an end. This is the last destination of presidents, ministers, generals, scandalous and controversial personalities, eccentric artists and victims of great tragedies. Thus the cemetery also offers a large amount of monuments in good condition several hundreds of which possess real artistic value.

We invite you to join the tour and meet the people who shaped an entire century for Latvia.

Guided tour in English and in Latvian.

Price: 7 EUR per person.
It is possible to pay in cash at our office.

Pievienojieties mūsu ekskursijai pa Rīgas Centrāltirgu!

Liekas, ka mūsdienās visi zina, ka Centrāltirgus angārus sākotnēji izmantoja nevis gaļas vai zivju produktu pārdošanai, bet gan kā dirižabļu angārus.

Taču ekskursijas gaitā mēs uzzināsim arī daudz ko maz zināmu un vēstures lappušu apslēptu, piemēram, par Staļina viesošanos Piena paviljonā, Centrāltirgus priekšteča un pazemes tuneļu kriminālo pagātni, skaistumkonkursu, kurš lika iejaukties policijai un daudz ko citu.

Tāpat ieskatīsimies Centrāltirgus pazemes pilsētiņā un apmeklēsim veco dzelzceļa staciju uz gaļas paviljona jumta.

CENA: 12 EUR.

Jūs varat samaksāt par ekskursiju arī skaidrā naudā uz vietas mūsu birojā.

Ekskursija ir pieejama angļu un latviešu valodā.

LV valodā – 11:00
EN valodā – 14:00

Tikšanās vieta – pie Centrālās stacijas pulksteņa.

Латышский рынок и его тайны

Приглашаем вас присоединиться к экскурсии по Рижскому центральному рынку (Centrāltirgus)!

В настоящее время, кажется, все знают, что ангары Рижского центрального рынка были сооружены для стоянки дирижаблей, а не для хранения мяса или рыбы.

Однако во время этого тура мы узнаем много нового: причину, по которой Молочный павильон называется «Сталинским»; заглянем в темные уголки подвала Рижского центрального рынка, пройдем через его центральный коридор, который имеет длину 337 метров, и увидим огромный старый компрессор, который был впервые установлен в 1930-е годы и проработал до 1986 г.

Мы также осмотрим бывшую железнодорожную станцию Центрального рынка, расположенную на его крыше.

ЦЕНА: 12 EUR

Вы также можете заплатить за тур наличными у нас в офисе.

Экскурсия проводится на английском и на латышском языках.

LV – 11:00
EN – 14:00

Встречаемся у башенных часов Центрального вокзала, а затем все вместе отправимся на экскурсию.

We invite you to join us for a tour of Riga’s Centrāltirgus!

It seems that nowadays everyone knows that the pavillions of Riga’s Centrāltirgus were built to store airships, not meat or fish.

However during this tour we will learn little know stories about the Central Market, take a look into the dark corners of its underground city, walk its 337-metre-long central corridor and see the old giant compressor, first installed in the 1930s, which ran until 1986. We will also see the former railway station of the Central Market, located on the roof.

PRICE: 12 EUR.

You can also pay for the tour in cash at our office.

The excursion is available in English and Latvian.

Let us meet at the Central Station clock to go together to the Central Market.
