    This is one of the most impressive places of the city. It is far too little noted. Who has been in this wooded area, must be touched by these countless mass graves. Have people can be as fanatical cruel? An important and depressing experience for all people of peace-drenched post-war generations.

    As important as I feel it is to visit this memorial, I feel very uneasy seeing it referred to as an attraction. However, I do feel that you MUST find time to this memorial.  more »

    This site convey many emotions by its sobriety, its location in the forest, the multiplication of the stones, serenity which emerges from the whole. Take time of to sit. Go preferably sunny day. There is little historical information on the spot, but the emotion prevails. Easy to access by bus. The site, though only in off the road, is not isolated, people flock or run = feels safe.

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.
