    Cool town.

    A very cool old town area in Riga with good restaurants, bars, and cafés. Many of the restaurants and bars stay open very late, which is great for travellers on holiday in my opinion.

    Insider Tip:Stay in the old town. Walk everywhere.

    Riga

    Riga is probably one of the most exciting cities in Europe when it comes to architecture. Especially one quartier in the north west of the city center offers a lot of Art nouvelle buildings and there is also a nice park that is integrated in the city infrastructure with its beautiful channel.

    Touristy

    Too many tourists, boring after half a day in the old town. GET OUT of the old town and go see the countryside, the beach or the poor neighbourhoods, then it gets very interesting.

    Insider Tip:Beach only 30min away by train.

    Riga- the variated town

    A beatuful town with all the squares, jugend(art nouveau) houses and so on. Good value for money. Dont forget the huge market close to the railway station. You will find things that never know that it existed. Visit even the outskirts of Riga. That is interesting och you will see average life in Riga. Do not forget Salaspils. A place to remeber the terrifying years during WW2. It´s a memory over a german koncentration camp. Take a bus from Stalin skyscraper. Ticket price 1 euro for the bus. Ask the dr

    Insider Tip:The Hostel "Two wheels" Restaurants: KID and Citi talki on Brivibas l. number 41

    Too nice to share

    Riga is a lovely city with very friendly locals. I hope the stag parties don't ruin it too much, I was lucky enough to avoid most of them in my time there! Stay classy Riga :)
