Latvia, a country known for its natural beauty and national parks. But what else does it have to offer?
Especially the capital Riga is a real magnet because of its charming old town and attracts people from all over the world. Beautiful old buildings and the largest market in Europe have their home here. This is a great opportunity for an extensive stroll, during which there is certainly a lot to discover.
Those who like adrenaline and action will also find what they are looking for in Riga.
All year round, there is an exciting range of activities on offer that will never let you get bored. Besides jeep off-road tours, bobsleigh or even a simulated flight with a jet, there are also exciting “survival experience” workshops that help you survive in the wilderness. Unusual but worth experiencing.
And after experiencing and discovering so much, there is one thing above all: hungry!
Don’t worry, Latvians are also far ahead in terms of culinary offerings, and your physical well-being is always well catered for. With delicious specialities but also very simple, more traditional dishes, there is something for everyone, so that no one has to go to bed with an empty stomach. One of our highlights was the pink candyfloss tree for dessert at Whitehouse Restorāns – a gourmet restaurant that focuses on European and Asian cuisine.
Speaking of bed, Riga offers good accommodation with a variety of hotels.
From hotel chains with small and large conference rooms to cosy accommodation in the old town, everyone can find a place to sleep here! Especially the smaller hotels exude a charm all their own and are definitely worth a visit. For example, Neiburgs Hotel & Restaurant. The 55 rooms of the 4-star hotel are designed in a cozy style, like their own little flats. From the hotel’s windows you have a view of the Old Town and the left bank of the Daugava River. The Latvian National Opera and Ballet, the best concert halls and museums are only a five to ten-minute walk away.
nice:-) is always looking for new destinations and open to new things. Latvia impressed us not only with its diverse activities, delicious food or beautiful hotels, but above all with its terrific hospitality that makes you feel welcome right away.
