  • Not only the Spikeri itself but also the Spikeri Promenade are worth to spend time. In promenade you can oversee the river of Daugava and just chill.  more »
  • Compartment is located behind the central market. According to the Guide, a description of the quarter sounds like: "between streets Maskavas, Krasta and Turgenev are so-called" Red barns "-historic buildings of brick, which appeared in Riga in 1864-1886 and was used as warehouse premises. Here there are small cafes, boutiques, art galleries, concert hall, Museum, Centre of contemporary culture. There are various cultural events, concerts, exhibitions, screenings, making this quarter creative. "we were in this place in the middle of January. Interesting historical buildings. Everything is closed, silence, desert ... You can go through the transition to the embankment, view of the river and make pictures ...

  • Historic place, what used to be Ghetto. Nowadays it is creative district, where you can enjoy art, gigs and theater performances. Just take a nice walk along promenade and enjoy beautiful sunsets. In summer you can grab some fresh food from central market and have lunch by the benches.
  • great local flea market where the locals come out with their treasures for tourist and locals alike
  • Frequently hosting free public events, Spīķeri is one of the best places to meet new people in Riga, and it's only a ten minute walk from the city center. There are often free concerts with a variety of Latvian and international musicians playing, craft days, open air cinema nights and the Riga Flea Market also takes place nearby.
  • A very vibrant and artistic recreational area with cafés, shops and art spaces, giving the former Central Market warehouse district a new look and feel. A concert hall, independent theatre and the Riga Ghetto Museum are also located here (although the ghetto was located elsewhere). The main square offers a wide cultural programme all year around. The downside is the accessibility of the area from Old Riga - the only secure crossing is the tunnel from the riverside on Krasta Street.
  • Wonderful area, missing some cafes only
