Latvians, “brothers” of Lithuanians, have numerous things to be proud of. Riga –  the capital of Latvia – is the most significant one. During the trip you will have a chance to find out some  secrets of Riga  and explore all narrow streets in the Medieval Old Town. Moreover, the tour to Riga gives you  a unique chance to participate in the Pub Crawl; this is a night dedicated for going to the best pubs all around the town in order to experience the nightlife in Riga. Thus, a trip to Riga is the best way to spend a weekend with your  friends.

And that is not all! Next to all the aforementioned attractions we organise a stop in Biržai. This is a small Lithuanian town we visit on the way back to Vilnius. There you will have an opportunity to see a well-preserved bastion-type castle, to try the most authentic Lithuanian beer, to learn all the beer making secrets and traditions, and much much more. So, it is about time to prepare your backpack!

Also, you will be entertained by a folklore ensemble, and you will even have a chance to participate  in their performance.
