Almost every year me and my university friends go on a trip. It is always around this time of year when cities are filled with Christmas lights, snow and mulled wine. So, this year we have decided to go to Riga and see how they are preparing for the holiday season. With its Medieval city centre, interesting history and contemporary culture, Riga is perfect for a short little break.
Christmas market in Riga is completely different from the one that we have in Vilnius. It looks so small but cozy with a Christmas tree, roasted almonds, chocolate glazed gingerbread and local handcraft. Although, Riga‘s nightlife looks like dead on Saturday night (or you have to know certain places), we had a great time and would come back here again because Riga is a lovely city that’s bursting with charm and Christmas mood 🙂
