Riga apartment description

Riga is the capital of Latvia, a small Baltic Sea nation that has been free from Soviet rule for 24 years. The Old Town is almost completely restored to its ravishing beauty of the 30's when its standard of living equaled Stockholm, Copenhagen and Amsterdam. This apartment is the personal residence of the president of an international Christian charity. He lives in it about 6 months per year. It's available to rent when he is not in Latvia.

It is about 100 years old, but fully renovated. It's in a large apartment building with an old, but functional elevator. The location is amazing, right in the middle of the Old Town. Look out the window and see the National Archives, Philharmonic Hall, Small Guild. Step out of the front door and you are in Dome Cathedral Square. There are countless restaurants, cafés, beer gardens, malls, antique stores, galleries, health spas, museums and places of historical interest. Street parking is not possible; public parking garage near by.

EVERY YEAR THOUSANDS OF EUROPEAN TOURISTS DECLARE THAT RIGA IS EUROPE'S BEST KEPT SECRET. Come and see why.
