During ancient times, Riga was already an important port and trading center of the Vikings on their way to the Byzantine Empire. Riga was officially established in 1201 by Albert of Bremen, who used it as a base for the Crusades. Riga later became a member of the Hanseatic cities (cities, which for several centuries dominated long-distance trade in the North and Baltic Seas). After the fall of the Hansa, Riga was first a part of Sweden, then Russia and in 1918 it became the capital of independent Latvia. During the 2nd World War, Riga was occupied by Germany. After the war, it was annexed by the Soviet Union. In 1990, Riga becameonce again the capital of the independent Latvian state.

The transportation around the city can be provided by a reliable urban transport system which is formed mostly by buses, trams and trolleybuses. Taxis are affordable, the majority of taxi drivers are very nice and are open to help tourists. Unfortunately, there are always some exceptions. Another variant of transport are minibuses or so called taxi-buses which can transport about 10 people at a time. They either stop at bus stops of public transport or virtually anywhere where it is permitted to stop. Riga is also a major port - from Stockholm in Sweden, from Kiel and Lübeck in Germany there is a ferry connection to Riga every day.
