Riga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the most popular tourist destination in the Baltic region, the U.S. business newspaper "International Business Times" reports.

The newspaper praises Riga's "old buildings, cobblestone streets, German architectural delights and a fascinating history that dates back to AD 1200," and illustrates the city with several impressive photos.


Riga becomes more and more popular in Europe due to its history, art and nightlife, which is gaining the reputation of the best in whole of Europe, writes LETA.


The newspaper points out that the Riga International Airport is the largest airport in the Baltic states, and is well connected to most of the European cities.


Trams, buses and taxis are available for traveling within the city. However, the best way to experience Riga's Old Town is on foot. The streets with round cobblestones can give an ouch to tourists' feet, but the buildings reflecting Soviet and German influence make up for everything else, the newspaper reports.
