Riga is the capital of the Republic of Latvia. Thanks to its geographical location, Riga has wonderful trade, cultural
and tourist facilities. Whilst able to offer all the benefits of a modern city, Riga has preserved its historical charm. It's
especially famous for its medieval part – Old Riga. Old Riga still preserves many mute witnesses of bygone
times. Its old narrow streets, historical monuments, organ music at one of the oldest organ halls in attract guests of our
city. In 1998 Old Riga was included into the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage.


A wide range of hotels will be at the disposal of participants of the conference and accompanying persons
