  • Island of Riga which was at the time inhabited by fishermen, and now rehabilitated with great care and taste.

  • Accommodation in Riga old town to walk slowly, headed in ķīpsala. That what is particularly great, although not the old wooden buildings of the area with a unique nostalgic atmosphere that exudes it was impressive. In one corner of the area and a nice restaurant, popular spot seemed to push local people and tourists alike. Enjoyed hanging with concrete bridge felt quite tired legs stretched out towards the plant on the West side of the island, and, while it also weirdly indescribable taste. I think Riga want it took the sepia photo space, the different tourist attractions.
