Take the opportunity to see rare species of eagles, owls, and falcons at Riga Zoo, which accommodates about 4,000 animals of nearly 500 species in a forested area on the lakeshore. Walk through the reptile tunnel, or visit the nocturnal room. Watch the ant colony cutting up and transporting leaves across the water to their nests. Children especially will enjoy the chance to pet sheep and goats. Amenities include a cafe, a small park area, and a playground with swings and a climbing gym. Become an honorary guardian of an animal by making a donation to the zoo. Discover how to plan a Riga trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
