  • Klusa, bet traģiska vieta. Apkārt menoras svečturim atrodasakmeņi, kuros ir iekalti šeit nogalināto vārdi. Atsevišķos akmeņos, ir iegravēti Rīgas geto teritorijas ielu nosaukumi. Masu kapu vietas iezīmētas ar taisnstūra betona apmalēm. The memorial, unveiled in 2002, is a moving sight. The small stones around the menorah carry the name of many of the Latvian Jews - Riga Ghetto residents, that were killed here. Even more, they have been placed there corresponding to the street on which they were settled. There's also a list there with the names of them. The mass graves are marked with concrete barriers.

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.
