Soviet Riga Bike Tour

During the 45 years of soviet rule in Latvia, Riga changed dramatically. Discover the legacy of communist architecture and art on the city on our Soviet Bike Tour.

Join our Soviet Riga Bike Tour to see the effect of the communist period on Riga. Weird socialist futurist architecture, block houses, workers districts, grandiose industrial factories are all on our route as we discover the effect of soviet rule on the city.

Comrades, together we will cycle out from the narrow Old Town streets and the fancy Central district to the suburbs and outskirts of the city to see the other side of Riga. Some people do not know about it, some pretend it does not exist, some want it gone. However, it is a fact that for large part of the population, these soviet constructed suburbs are home.

Get a full understanding of the effect that the period as part of the USSR had on the Riga, the population and the national identity. See how the city is awakening and changing in the years since the Soviet Unions collapse. Get on a bike and discover soviet Riga.
