I had a great time in Riga. The old town is just fabulous to walk around exploring, and I recommend the KGB museum just outside the old town, well worth a visit. Went to Ala Pagrabs Folk bar which was fabulous, underground caverns, good food, great beer and a really good live band on a evening.

Riga is one of my favorites cities. I had a great time there. Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs is like a Pub/ Restaurant and has a nice atmosphere. Great food, drinks and music. The free walking tour in Riga Old Town is a nice way to explore the place and learn a bit about its history.

The old town is quite small and cozy. Half day is enough to walk around and see the places. Comparing to other European cities, Riga is quite cheap. Buy the real amber bracelets/necklaces and try as many as local bakeries you can!

I really recommend taking a free walking tour. The museums in Riga are pretty expensive at like €10 a ticket, so choose the museums that interest you! Two free museums that I found very interesting were the Museum of the Latvian Popular Front and the Holocaust and Riga Ghetto Memorial Museum. Make sure to check out the canals and parks that go through the centre, just outside of the old town - at night you can even see beavers in the canal.

I went to Riga last summer and loved it! I stayed in the cinnamon Sally backpackers hostel. It was cheap, the staff were so friendly. Me and a few other guest actually ended up on a night out with the staff. I found it to be cheap but so charming. I also used bolt to get everywhere. It's like their version of uber. I recommend Riga to everyone now.

I loved especially the old Town, but both the old and the modern part have an entertaining nightlife. Through the city there are a few Lido restaurants, very good and cheap food there, especially the one at the leisure dome, I recommend them. And for the chillest tea (or coffee) you can go to Apsara Tea House. It's a great destination for culture and nature. I'm definitely going back someday.

I am historian with a bit of an interest in programming. I would exchange big city for a hike and sleeping under million star hotel with a mountain view in - a heartbeat. But I can also enjoy a good tour around a city, museums, architecture and searching for a famous people gravestones( not in a creepy way). Big Harry Potter, Star Wars, Game of Thrones fan. In my free time I like to write fiction novels and walks with my dog.
