  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Cool events, concerts, flea market sometimes.
  • Nice calm place nearby central market. Place where to feel some breeze in summer.

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.
