... Latvia regained its independence.
During the above period it is estimated that 550,000 (a third of the population) were killed, misplaced or just were plain missing. Of course during their reign (of terror) the Nazi's had a Solution for the 45,000 Latvian Jews - only about 1,000 of them survived. It was the same in Estonia and Lithuania.
On a more cheerful note, our holiday continues - Vilnius next ...
... over the last couple of hundred years. Aside from the moderately amusing recorder skills of a busker (yes.. recorder), an interesting point here was a supposed magic spring of mountain water. Supposedly drinking this water would increase longliviety and cure disease. It was delicious, clean, fresh water, and felt great and soothing on my sore throat. A miracle cure! Maybe!Next stop, Turulda, home to another old castle, once seat of the bishop, and a muchly ...
... a train. In the winter, forget it. On the train from Moscow to Minsk, I could see some blowing snow at one point but then the windows were so dirty, I never could tell for sure what was outside.
One good point about being an American traveling on a foreign train is that the customs people usually leave you alone OR maybe I look like a harmless old lady. Luckily I have never taken up the art of smuggling but maybe I should? Between ...
... that we would never have seen if we had taken the main road back.
Once we boarded the ship, we had a while until dinner. So we decided to waste time as well as we could, and watched my favorite movie: Pride and Prejudice. When we finished dinner, we decided to go to one of the clubs on the ship. We watched one of the performances given by the ships crew, but we were mostly people watching. We were sailing through rough ...
... they took the wallet, waved goodbye, and he was robbed! Looking around the streets of Riga before, watching the soviet-style policemen everywhere, I believe it.
So last night, I quickly realised that I was getting myself into the exact group I was avoiding - seven guys, drunk on the streets of Riga. It was the typical ****, where a bunch of older men are salivating over any girl they see, and discussing the dutch girls in the hostel (who happen to be in my room), and I ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Europa Royale Riga
Gut und schlecht
Ein restauriertes Herrenhaus, dass sehr praktisch in der Nähe der Sehenswürdigkeiten liegt. Sie sollten aber kein Zimmer im 4.Stock buchen, da Sie sich sonst wohl möglich Ihren Kopf an den Balken stoßen werden. Das Essen im Restaurant war gut. Der Einrichtungsstil richtet sich nach mehreren Stilen, um es mal so zu sagen. Sie sollten Ihre Wäsche nicht dort abgeben, weil Sie meine Veste und die Hosen eines anderen Gentlemans verloren haben.
Very stylish hotel, the room was large (I had a business room), comfortable and well decorated. In the room it was smelling a bit from cigarette smoke allthough it was a non smoking room; the smell actually seemed to come from the AC.
Just returned from a long weekend in Riga, having previously stayed at the Europa Royale in Vilnius I was expecting great things. This was a mistake as the Vilnius hotel has huge rooms, plasma TV and jacuzzi bath which the Riga Royale does not.
El Europa Royal en Riga fue un placer absoluto. Las habitaciones estaban bien decoradas, el personal era extremadamente servicial y placentero y la ubicación era muy céntrica (a 5 minutos a pie del casco antiguo). El edificio era una mansión convertida (creo que ha sido convertida recientemente en hotel) así que las habitaciones tienen techos muy altos, la entrada es muy elegante y las habitaciones están muy bien decoradas. El casino en el hotel era muy bueno también había numerosos juegos de naipes. Cuando visitamos el casino, había una fiesta para el personal así que pudimos cenar tres platos, beber cocteles y fumar cigarrillos gratuitamente durante toda la noche. También había un cuarteto de cuerdas con una cantante que acompañó esta noche lujosa. No estoy seguro si la comida estaba allí para la fiesta o si siempre está allí cada fin de semana. Definitivamente vale la pena ir si hay una fiesta pues nos divertimos mucho con el personal letón. Sobre todo, no podríamos pedir un hotel mejor donde alojarnos durante nuestro viaje a Letonia. Lo recomiendo sumamente a cualquier persona que viaje a Riga.
The Europa Royal in Riga was an absolute pleasure to stay in. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the staff were extremely helpful and pleasant, and the location was very central (5 minute walk to the Old Town).
Good and bad
Restored Mansion convenient to the sights. Don't book a fourth floor room otherwise you will be bumping into the A frames of the building. Food very good in the restuarant. Furnishings of hotel ecletic to say the least. Don't get your laundry done here. They lost my vest and a gentleman two days before lost his pants
Just come back from Riga and a lovely stay in this beautiful hotel. The staff were quick to respond to my initial email to book a taxi from the airport and right from the minute we arrived were friendly and helpful. Loved the bed turndown and chocolate at night too.
The breakfast was good and everywhere very clean.
This is a renovated hotel and the decor was amazing from beautiful plaster ceilings to wooden floors. We stayed in a standard room which was large with a lovely bathroom with bath. The ceilings are high and molded and everything was in keeping with the history of the building.
Would definately recommend this for a special stay.
The bar and restaurant in this hotel are fantastic! The wood panelled bar with stained glass windows merits a trip in itself. The food is delicious and the service first class.
Very swish, but still working out the kinks
i just spent 3 nights at the europa. the hotel just opened and is still working out the kinks, but definitely very swish and a great location, steps away from old town as well as the art nouveau sections.
my one beef was their internet: they do have wifi and although i was able to connect to their network, couldn't get online and they could not fix the problem. and i know it wasn't me because i had no problems whatsoever getting online using the wifi in old riga and the skyline lounge at the top of the reval hotel just down the street ...
