A little rough around the edges, Riga is a wonderful affordable city. You money will go a long way here, making this a great alternative to other pricier Euro cities.

Riga is a place where your experience will depend in large part on WHEN you choose to visit. Bubbling with concerts, street-life, and more than its fair share of partying in the warmer months, Riga can often seem a bit shriveled in the cold, when its lovely outdoor spaces aren't being put to their best use. Year-round, however, the old city center is beautiful, the beer IS in fact very good, and the women quite lovely. Time your visit right and you'll have a great time: it's a place best experienced as a social city.

Rīga is a nice Latvian town, although most people are probably interested mostly in the old town section. I found plenty of places for nice runs, the parks are clean, and the old town busy and full of energy.
