“Old city is beautiful”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We stayed in Hotel Kolonna, right at the Dome square, so we had walking distance to everything. It took some time to find the way around, but it didn't matter if you got lost. So many beautiful buildings, nice cafes and restaurants,

“Latvia World Choir Games 2014”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I have just returned from he WCG 2014 in Riga. We stayed at the Radisson Blu Daugava Hotel just across hate river from the old town. Riga is a beautiful city with many Art Nouveau buildings and a fabulous food culture. It's risen from the shackles of Soviet times and inspire of many years of occupation the medieval buildings remain. People are friendly and helpful it's easy to get around. LOve to go back and see more.

“Much to See!!!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Riga's Old Town consists of many square blocks of pedestrian friendly, cobble stone streets to offer several days of people watching, picture taking, museum hopping and dining opportunities. Beginning late afternoon and into the evening there are multiple venues offering live music - everything from country bands to organ concerts.
