Some Questions

I am planning to visit Riga for the first time in the mid of February. Therefore I have a few questions:

1. Which sights are a MUST?

2. Can you recommend good restaurants or pubs, specially for traditional food?

3. Where are good places to go shopping at low prices. Maybe there are some fancy shops too?

4. I am travelling alone. Is there any thing I should take care off and are there some places where I should not go (No Go Areas)?

5. Anything else you can recommend

Thanks in advance!

1. Which sights are a MUST?

Old Town, Art Nouveau District, Jurmala beach.

2. Can you recommend good restaurants or pubs, specially for traditional food?

Lido self-service restaurants for hearty portions, simple dishes, traditional feel at reasonable prices.

3. Where are good places to go shopping at low prices. Maybe there are some fancy shops too?

You will see that clothes are mainly more expensive than in UK and other countries, even during sales. Fancy shops sell previous collections at high prices.

4. I am travelling alone. Is there any thing I should take care off and are there some places where I should not go (No Go Areas)?

Just use common sense. Maybe Central market and Maskavas street district are not the best places to be around at night.

5. Anything else you can recommend

Please, read this forum - all your questions have been answered many times before. Some detailed, nice trip reports have been posted recently.

Have a great time in Riga!
