Do you ever wonder about the secrets kept by historical sights? Discover the most curious ones on this self-guided walk! How? By solving location-based riddles created by Zanda and Iveta, local guides and avid travellers. Unlock directions for interesting spots, like the former site of the world’s highest wooden structure (back in the XVIII century), fortified walls, and vibrant markets. Along the (cobbled) way you’ll also learn about crusading knights and… political cats on the rooftops.

This playful walk across Riga sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know the Old Town or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

We know you’ll love our experiences, but if this is your first, rest assured - you can solve up to three riddles and still get a full refund, or in case of the Wonder Walks - all subscription plans come with one week free trial. See our T&Cs here.
