    We were going there to a match of the basketball team. Because we were on the road in the city, we had a camera. The inlet was forbidden to us due to the camera. There was also no way to make the camera or to stow away in a safety deposit box. Such rules must simply be lockers available! Too bad!

    I visited the Arena for a sports competition, the purpose of its construction, but for the World Jazz Festival. Beautiful modern property situated in the new part of the city. The visibility is good from all areas of the tiers and the acoustics are very good. Behind the bleachers there are wide corridors with kiosks that sell every type of gourmet products.

    Getting in Arena - security check was quite quickly. Arrived before the concert to hang around - get some food, drinks...instead stood in a long queue for coat check AND in the end had to pay for it (only in cash!!!).

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
