Riga or Copenhagen for short weekend?

Jump to last reply

I would appreciate advice of those who have visited both.
I will be in northern Europe late September and have a free weekend before I start work--basically fly somewhere on Friday late afternoon and leave Sunday afternoon. Friday night will just be travel and sleep.
I have traveled extensively in Finland, visited Stockholm several times, one day in Tallinn and gone to Oslo+Norway in a Nutshell on previous trips. The two destinations that seem to have a selection of nonstop flights and reasonable costs are Riga and Copenhagen.

I enjoy architecture, history, local/distinctive culture, and the outdoors (parks, nature). I spend little time on food, shopping, or hotels. I'm a 50-yr-old female traveling alone, but used to it.

Riga sounds intriguing because it offers "different" and seems small enough to appreciate the major sites in a Saturday and part of Sunday.

Copenhagen offers a day trip out of the city to one of the castles on Saturday, then exploring the city on Sunday, but I think not enough time? I've tried repeatedly on earlier trips to make it to Denmark, but the timing or cost was never right.

Anything that would sway you one way or the other?
