March 20, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Riga, the 2014 European Capital of Culture, has for a long time given many treasures to the culture of Europe. In order to support travellers, a new app is since this week available for this city.

It is more than 800 years old and each century has left its marks on it. Heritage of old Gothic churches, medieval buildings, exquisite Art Nouveau, as well as wooden buildings make Riga a true pearl of architecture. Plus, Riga offers a dynamic cultural life: concert halls regularly offer classic and popular music concerts, exhibition halls present works of world-known classical and contemporary artists.

Farol City Guides is the smart way to visit Riga. The app builds personalized sightseeing itineraries for short city-break tourists and business travellers based on profile and available time. Plus, it has the most relevant spots in the city available for personal choosing, from that important monument or museum, to a fancy restaurant, a cosy coffee

terrace, or simply a traditional shop. The offline map and travel guide experience is taken to a next step in terms of apps.

Get around the biggest and most vibrant city of the Baltics. With timeless elegance and a fusion of the new and the old, this new cultural epicentre of Europe will for sure surprise you. The best way to get to know it is definitely the new launched Farol Riga.

FAROL Riga is available on the Android market and soon on iTunes. You can know more about this outstanding travel app on the official website at
