What is the Soviet Riga tour about? It is hard to imagine now that life was so different in Riga and Latvia not so long ago. Mostly Russian was spoken in shops and offices, streets and squares had Soviet names, and democracy and freedom of speech seemed to be an impossible dream. Then our fight for independence started…
During the tour you will walk through places that bring back memories about this difficult period in the history of Latvia, we will look at the Museum of Occupation and KGB House, where thousands of people were tortured, humiliated, and then deported to GULAG labor camps in Siberia, see several Soviet–era buildings and listen to an eyewitness account of what life was like in Soviet times.
Our Soviet Riga tour will take you as close as possible to a feeling that most people in Latvia would not want to experience again.
