Riga is a capital of Latvia and often regarded as a city where East meets the West. There is very good selection of both bars and restaurants, good opportunities for great shopping and the prices are lower compared to many other European capitals.
The beautiful town feels small and intimate and you have everything within walking distance. Do you want to get around any other way you can for examplechoose between bus, tram and taxi, which is quite affordable. We recommend, however, to fix the price for taxi before you jump in.
