I and group of my friends had fantastic time in Riga. We booked tailored package holiday from Travell2Riga company. The package included accommodation, transfer, dinner, bobsleighs, pub crawling. Old town is beautiful, very unique architecture. It's easy get around the city. Great food and drink choice. Try Riga Balsam while visiting the place. Prices are reasonable. Those who are planning city break, boys or girls weekend away or another type of the group travel, highly recommend!
1. Ask local for prices in all places, for real prices. 2. In Riga cheapest is public transportation, yet all public tr. ticket prices are universal ~1EUR/piece 3. Old Riga really differs from rest of the city by any means: People, prices, jobs, architecture. 4. Rest of the city is filled with Soviet style housing and 25% speaks only Russian.
