Cesis is another possible daytrip from Riga, about 50 miles or so east by train. I was there on a Sunday and found the town to be quite depressed and almost deserted.  Apparently a large part of the population of Latvia, particularly those from rural areas, has gone abroad to Britain, Ireland, or Scandinavia to work.  That would seem to be the case in Cesis.  The main attraction in the town is the ruins of one of Latvia's largest castles.
