Riga is huge, diverse and different. its also rather poor and dirty city but you'll see most of freaks are intelligent and emotionally deep people. undeground is also going strong and there's a lot of talent within, as opossite to mainstream "art" which is a lot like everywhere else. and its almost like here the electronic musik is not mainstream yet so you can happen to find yourself at illegal rave in some deserted factory if you come over.
As being able to expierence Riga from all types of positions- knowing it s my capital, while living in small Latvian village, or having it as my city while studying there later on in my life and now, that i see Riga from point of tourist, as i'm there only for sort visist while being a global citizen, i can tell it is one fantastic city.lots to see, lots to expierence,to do....great.go there-fill it and write your impresion here!!!
enjoy your stay!
Top Things to See and Do
with Europe approaching fast, Riga is still dirty and open spot inbetween east and west. the central station is all fucked up - its true gate to the Europe since its not much different to, say, Cologne's central station. old Riga is being restored and cleaned up as well, as it is filled with pubs and shops. still, for an explorer and someone looking for adventures and unusual sights and happenings, this is the place. go straight out of center, any direction and see how diverse and deep this big smoke, grey sky city can be!
Check this out: http://www.118.lv/118/cattal_pils - distances between latvian cities, but SORRRRY - only on latvian :(
places worth to see nearby Riga:
Jurmala - the best resort in Latvia,
Sigulda, Turaida landscape, especially in autumn, old castles and parks, caves (ok, not huge ones), Gauja river...
Ligatne - great park of wild animals or how to call it)
Rundale - one of the most beautiful castle in Latvia.
basically - Latvia is small, you can stay in Riga and make one - two days tours around.
Be aware that there are very arrogant pickpockets in Riga. I have been twice in Riga during this autumn and both times had to deal with them. Keep your backpacks zips closed with some lock or keyring and have eyes on your back.
Who is coming?
sue86: I'll be in Riga July and August and I'd be glad to meet some of the HC members living there. It'd also be nice if someone could show me around a bit.
Want more guests! freaks wanted! try if i'm around
