Travel with Children

The Unesco-protected streets of Old Rīga can feel like a magical time warp for the 12-and-under bunch. During the summer months, take the tykes to the zoo in forested Mežaparks or let the little ones cool off on the beach in nearby Jūrmala. Here, between spirited sessions of wave-jumping and sandcastle-building, try Līvu Akvaparks, Latvia’s largest indoor water park, which features a wave pool and a tangle of waterslides.
