... important to the Jewish history in Riga. First stop was at the Jewish Cultural Centre and then on to the memorial where the great choral synagogue was burnt down by the Nazis in 1941 and then on to the memorial in the Rumbala forest, on the outskirts of the city. Riga was a major ghetto centre for Jews in the Second World War and in 1941 from the ghetto they were marched to trenches dug in the forest and shot, 1000 at a time. ...

... the old town. Whilst it's the Art Nouveau buildings that it's most famous for, there are others of note. One being the Academy of Sciences (as it now is) but it's known locally as Stalin's Birthday Cake.

They gave away one gift certificate for the cocktail lottery, and ...

... museum covered this period in a lot of detail and is the period of history I'm most familiar and interested in.

The displays on the latter parts of the city's history (1800s on) didn't interest me as much and I was aware of the time.

Sveiki! We arrived by bus to Riga and spent a couple of days there. We met two Latvians who took us to the Milk Festival ( named so as it originally took place in an old milk factory) which was in a big park and featured popular Latvian artists. It was quite nice but more family orientated so we spent only a few hours there before heading back into the city and taking a walk around the old town. We were super tourists on Monday and took along an Australian we met at the hostel. ...
