    Always lot o

    This is maybe the fiftith times that i put a foot on this land. My opinion does not change. The evolution of this city is very slow. Prices seem not to rise. It is good. A lot of place to party until 6 or 7 am. But be careful. Some bars get your money from your credit card. See the black list of american ambassie.

    Eh, a couple of days will do it.

    People are friendly, women are pretty, good nightlife, but not a whole lot to do or see otherwise. Good for a couple of days.

    Insider Tip:If you are hungover and have a good group rent a car and go for a road trip. Some of the "sights" around Lativa are laughable.

    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 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.

    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.
