In 1870 Mr Horn built the first hotel in Majori, and a concert garden where the famous symphonic orchestras performed. In 1896 the first movie in Jūrmala was shown here. Despite the fact that in 1913 the Horn’s Garden together with all the ambient buildings burnt down in fire, now  Jūrmala cultural centre is located there and the music again  is played in the garden. The Horn’s garden was renovated in 2005.

Miers means "peace" in Latvian, and if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Riga, a peaceful haven awaits you in the Bohemian-style quarter on Miera Street, with its string of charming cafes and shops.

Every year, one day in the month of May, Miera Street is closed to traffic for its special festival featuring live music, performances, games&attractions, an arts&crafts fair, various workshops. On nearby Aristida Briāna Street, at the cafe/night club "Piens" (Latvian: milk), summertime brings its festival (usually on a Sunday) for outdoor concerts, refreshing milkshakes and new friends.

A new and already-popular addition to the quarter – right next to ‘’Piens”, is the ‘’9kl” Arts Centre, just a few doors from the micro-brewery "Labietis", with its very own brands made from unusual ingredients.

Meanwhile, at Miera 22, it’s the Chocolate Museum at the "Laima" Confectionary with its unique interactive exhibit. A bit farther ahead is another venue for artistic endeavors – the territory of the former tobacco factory ("Tabakas fabrika").

Still forward, within walking distance, is "Lielie kapi" - the former mayoral cemetery (late 18th century), now resting place for many celebrities.

The new Latvian National Library building, also known as the “Palace of Light”, was designed by the famous Latvian-American architect Gunārs Birkerts. The library opens the year Riga is designated the European Capital of Culture.

 The Latvian National Library is located on the left bank of the Daugava. It is home to over one thousand reading desks and rooms for group lectures, exhibitions, public debates, presentations and other such happenings.

The new library is arriving in tandem with the uniform library information system or “Network of Light”, which makes it possible to access Latvian National Library materials from any other library in Latvia. 

The Art Academy of Latvia was founded in 1919. The academy occupies one of the most impressive architectural monuments of the early 20th century in Riga - a Neo-gothic building in Riga centre that originally housed Riga Stock Exchange Union’s School of Commerce.

The Art Academy of Latvia encompasses several departments to study visual arts, visual plastic arts, design, audio-visual art, theory of art. The academy collaborates with a number of art academies in other countries, offering students to participate in exchange programmes and in international developments.

An interesting experiece in Riga is a visit to the gallery "Noass” and "Betanovuss”, docked in the Daugava River at the AB jetty. The gallery is managed by the culture/arts project "Noass”, one of the first non-governmental organisations in Latvia whose mission is to provide a contemporary artistic milieu for the community, and host appealing special events for foreign tourists.  

On the deck of  "Noass” and "Betanovuss” is where a wide range of art exhibits, modern dance performances and poetry and prose readings take place. For over 10  years, the floating gallery has been associated with the international contemporary and video art festival "Ūdensgabali”, offering the latest video experiments from around the world.

During major festivals and events in Riga, that are well-attended, "Noass” and "Betanovuss” always line up an interesting programme of their own. Two examples here are the international "Night of Museums” and the Riga City Festival.

On the "Betanovuss” premises, the unique permanent collection of the Museum of Naive Art can be found, with works from as far back as the 18th century. Several hundred entities, with special attention given to Latvian artists of today. 

The building which housed the KGB or Committee for State Security Headquarters in Riga during the Soviet period has opened for the general public as a feature of Riga’s year as the European Capital of Culture.

The building at the intersection of Brīvības Street and Stabu Street used to go by the name of Stūra māja (corner house) – obviously because of its location, as well as for a long history of putting many people in a very tight corner indeed.

The KGB was a particularly repressive authority that the Bolsheviks established soon after coming to power in Russia in 1917. They set up the Emergency Commission, or Cheka, to seek and eliminate opponents of Bolshevism. Since then, Cheka and KGB were the terms used to denote the entire oppressive Soviet system, regardless of the name changes the authority went through.

The KGB building in Riga has been unable to find new tenants. In order to turn the spotlight on and prompt discussion about the history of the building, the KGB House is open to the general public from April 30 to October 31 this year, offering an extensive educational and cultural programme. The first, fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the building showcase history and art exhibitions about the building, visitors are also offered guided tours of the building's legendary ominous basement.
