Cheap flights to Riga Latvia

A living fantasy by the Baltic Sea

About Riga

.

Green and breezy in the summertime, covered with picturesque fluffy snow in winter, Riga is a just about a living fantasy. The city’s curvy art nouveau architecture is some of the finest in the world, but there are also plenty of baroque beauties and medieval survivors along the narrow sidewalks of the Old City.

Riga’s annual ‘Go Blonde’ festival sees hundreds of blonde girls dressed in pink marching through downtown.

Let go and get lost, and when your feet start to hurt, pop into any tiny bar – and there will be plenty! – to restore your energy with a shot of iconic Riga Black Balsam. The blackcurrant flavour is the best. When you get enough of city pleasures, escape to the closest beach and spend a day among pines and sand dunes, dipping your toes into the icy Baltic Sea.

During the Soviet occupation, the neo-gothic St. Savior's Church was converted into a discotheque for students.
