Riga offers the opportunity to enjoy a rich and colourful cultural life. Are you an opera fan? Then visiting the Latvian National Opera and Ballet, just opposite the hotel, is a must when staying in Riga. The stately neoclassical-style building in Riga was originally constructed as the Riga German Theatre in 1863. It has been refurbished several times and a modern annex was added in 2001 with a 300-seat New Hall. Take in one of the best productions, including classical opera, modern opera and ballet performances, as well as children’s operas and original Latvian productions.
