Must see and do

Hi there,

My friends and myself are looking at traveling to Riga at the end of the month. There's six of us and like to travel Europe to visit different city's. As we are only there for three nights I was wondering what people would recommend as must see attractions?

Hi

There is so many suggestions in this forum if you look.

Walk in the OldTown, view from Sky Bar, restaurant Lido Krasta,

Central market, Occupation museum, trip to seaside and Jurmala...

Now end of January is not a warm time in Riga so remember warm clothes.

Thanks,

Is there anywhere just outside of Riga that might be worth a visit?

Yes the Jurmula city and beach is 30 min outside of Riga.

Sigulda and Cesis is longer and maybe not the best time

of year to go there. Except if you will try winther entertainment

as bobsleigh.

The castle ruins in Cesis are wonderful, but it's about a 15 minute walk from the train/bus station to the castle. If the weather isn't too cold, it might be a good place to go. It's about two hours by bus from Riga to Cesis.
