Riga is the Latvia's capital and largest city. In fact, it is the largest city in the Baltic States. Discover its beauty with a rental car as you take a drive through the streets of Riga and get a glimpse at an eclectic array of art nouveau and gothic influence. St. George's Church was built in 1202 and is the oldest building in Riga, the gorgeous Art Academy was built in 1921, and the Latvian Academy of Sciences was built after WWII between 1953 and 1956. The Academy of Science is open to the public and offers a lovely view of Riga from its balcony high on the 17th floor. These are just a few shining examples of the beautiful buildings you will spot from your rental car. If you are visiting with your family, you will want to check out the Riga Zoo. The zoo originally opened in 1917, but was forced to shut down during WWI when the German's occupied Latvia. The zoo reopened in 1933, but its progress was halted again during WWII. In 1944, it was once more reopened to the public. Today it is home to over 3,000 animals from almost 500 species and is a popular attraction for those visiting Riga.
