Astonishing autumn weekend in Riga! Part 1

Hey! What are you doing now? Besides reading this article of course and chatting with your friends in MSN. Sitting at work and counting hours till it is over or being bored at home, not knowing how to cheer one-self up? Yeah, I know, the weather sucks, routine work, school or whatever, all the new places and shops had been checked for million of times and even Tallinn can not be called a fresh place for week-end getaway anymore. Feeling even more depressed after all this? Well don’t be, because this time we are going to Riga! Ready? Ok, here is the complete guide for fabulous time-spending.

So, first we start from how to get to Riga? Flight is the easiest way, but still it is more fun to go by ferry to Tallinn and there by car or bus (Eurolines are suggested; you can buy your ticket on-line at, straight to the capital of Latvia.

Next step going to be is choosing where to stay. The first place in this hard issue definitely belongs to the Reval Hotel Latvia, which is easy to find, located in the very center of the city, meaning that all the places you will need to visit are on the walking distance form your hotel and another not least important point – price. For this price this is the best quality you possibly can get! The hotel is huge, but hope you don’t honestly believe you are going to be the only one in Riga that specific weekend? So be the smart one and book it at least couple of days in advance, at

So all of the preparations seem to be done at the moment and the only thing left is packing the things and go! And don’t be too hysterical, while making your baggage, take as little as you can, because no one could resist substantial shopping in Riga so far, so pack something comfortable for the day and something extremely fabulous for the night, ah, and not in any case forget great mood and energy!

Now, finally we had arrived to the whole main idea of this article – the must-visit places in Riga. Let’s imagine that you arrived safely, checked-in at hotel and now probably wondering what to do next. More than sure the only thing you can think of at that moment is getting some food! Well there are lots and lots of great places to eat, but let’s take the closest one – Gastronomie, located right in Reval Hotel Latvia. This newly opened restaurant is famous with its sophisticated design and fresh seafood. Even if you don’t like fish that much it is still advised to try it here, as it is the best fish you can possibly get. Also the snails, oysters and even great meat, as well as absolutely great wine selection. So definitely try it out: Gastronomie, 55 Elizabetes iela, open 11.00-23.00.

After you have filled your stomach it is about time to enjoy a small walk around and enjoy gorgeous architecture of the city as well as pass by few shops, which are just next to the hotel.
GF Ferre and Emporio Armani flagship stores, located just outside the hotel, definitely worth checking it out as at the moment they are the closest shops of this brands we have (until the new Emporio Armani’s shop opens in Tallinn). Both are located at the same address Elizabetes iela, 51 and have the same opening hours 10.00-20.00, Saturdays 10.00-18.00, closed on Sundays.

Next boutique definitely worth visiting is called Venezia and situated just around the corner on Barznicas iela, open 10.00-19.00, Saturdays 10.00-18.00, Sundays 12.00-16.00. This place has to offer for its clients brands like Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana, D&G, Cesare Paciotti and Sergio Rossi.
That is probably enough of shopping for the first day and it is time to start getting ready for the night out. If you are like it was advised staying in Reval Hotel Latvia, then just take the separate elevator which is going to take you to the last floor, where the Skyline bar is filling the glasses. Enjoy a couple of mojitos, watching the breathtaking view on the night Riga. But don’t stay long, there is still much to see this night.
