7, Nēģu iela, Latgales priekšpilsēta, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia
Riga seems to be pretty good at recycling historical venues - the 400 year old buildings of the old town, for instance, are now pizza joints and nightclubs. The pavilions housing the central market, opposite the train station, were actually built...

Tērbatas iela 2D, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia
Riga's city centre is beautifully designed, with a gorgeous park at its centre. The first evening I arrived I was, naturally, a little cautious about walking through a large open area on my own at night but as the days progressed I realised that...

Alberta iela, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1010, Latvia
Riga has a number of astounding Art Nouveau buildings, but no better concentration of them than on Albert Street. A short road where every building tries to outdo the last, it's the ultimate address for a pre-Raphaelite beauty (and the most...

Kalēju iela 30, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia
This is an odd one: a surrealism-themed Mongolian barbecue in a bland shopping mall in the Baltics. Doesn't sound like it should work - but it does. I popped in here for dinner on my first night in Latvia, purely because it was the only place that...

Miera iela 19, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1001, Latvia
OK, there may be better cafes. You may have alternative preferences. But I absolutely adored the Dad Cafe in Miera Street. I came across it at just the right moment - a long morning of walking had left me desperate for an even longer sit, and this...

Alberta iela 12, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1010, Latvia
Riga, Latvia has some of the finest examples of Art Nouveau architecture anywhere in the world. Most of the buildings are concentrated on Elizabete iela and Alberta iela and are the work of architect Mikhail Eisenstein. Before you leave for Riga,...

Jet lag had us in bed early and up early. With most of Riga just getting ready for the start of the work day, my travel partner and I headed out to explore Riga's Central Market, Europe's largest market and bazaar. By the time we arrived at the...

Winter can be bitter cold in Riga. I can across this tiny restaurant on my way back to the hostel. The soup I ordered was mushroom chicken with sour cream. It was delicious. It cost less than a dollar.

Riharda Vāgnera iela 13, Centra rajons, Rīga, LV-1050, Latvia
I really enjoyed the small Museum of Pharmacy in Riga, Latvia. The workers there were nice and helpful, and although they couldn't speak English they provided me with a guided tour pamphlet. If you like pharmacy and plant medicine than this is a...

Latvia
Foraging for mushrooms is a popular activity in Latvia and since our trip coincided with mushroom season, I decided we should give it try. It would also give us a chance to do a bit of hiking. It was a crisp, cool mornings in late August when we...
