Would have got 5 stars from us except we got the last room which was smoking and we are not. The hotel is right in the center of UNESCO old town, great music unless you are a light sleeper. Staff were great.

I'm not sure who would steal a tightly locked bike in broad daylight in the middle of the shopping center, nor do I know how our presence would avoid this, but there you ...
... shop that carries only items made in Latvia. For supper, we went Italian, to an outdoor restaurant in a small plaza, off the main tourist track. Excellent food and service for a reasonable price. Our final day in Riga was again spent walking around the old streets, taking pictures and eating. The rain started in early afternoon and at times turned into a downpour with thunder and lightening. We were again going to ...
... the cities (relatively) expensive old town which she disregarded as tourist hoax, the majority of it having been destroyed and rebuilt in the Second World War. In the war Riga was an important strategic foothold, primarily due to the many advantages of its harbour location, and was occupied three times - firstly by the Soviets in 1939, secondly by the Nazi's in 1941 and then again by the Soviets after the conflict. Perhaps the greatest ...
