Excursion on a retro tram
A ride in a lovely old carriage is a great way to turn a tour through the town centre into a real adventure. The first stop – street Ausekla – is located next to the famous Art Nouveau district. After that the tram stops near the National Theatre and then at the National Opera – both buildings are known as beautiful examples of the early 20th century architecture. The tram route goes past the Chocolate Museum “Laima” and ends in Mežaparks, where you can find the Adventure Park “Mežakaķis” and the Riga Zoo.
