Multimedia Virtual Tour of Old Riga

Category: 360° panoramas, Multimedia, Virtual tours, Web development


Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe due to its favourable location on the Great Daugava river route. A lively crossroad of cultures for more than 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

A project of digital conservation of this open-air museum, virtual tour of Old Riga features interactive 360° panoramic photos and colourful photo galleries from street corners, squares, parks, churches, towers and bridges; 3D movies showing the most remarkable architectural monuments from perspectives never seen before, a collection of postcards from the beginning of the 20th century and a commentary that gives an insight in the history, architecture and lifestyle of Old Riga and its citizens throughout the centuries.
