    Knights Court - an Excellent Place to Stay

    by

    We found Knights Court Hostel on www.booking.com and booked through www.booking.com but you can also book through Knights Court's own website which is http://knightscourt.lv/en/ and they can be contacted by email: info@knightscourt.lv

    We stayed here in early November 2013.

    It is called a Hostel, but it is more like a B&B in comfort, and breakfast is included. We had a private room with shared bathroom, but the great advantage was that the room next door to us was unoccupied for our first night, so we had the large bathroom to ourselves.

    We were there in early November (having got a bus from Tallinn), and we were notified that the reception closed at 8pm. We emailed them to advise that we were arriving by bus (Ecolines) from Tallinn, and that we would be walking from the bus terminal to the accommodation. We decided to walk because we did not yet have Latvian currency (Lats) and it was likely that the banks or exchange bureaus may be closed when we arrived, so we would not have the ability to pay a bus fare in Latvian currency.

    The staff emailed us with detailed and accurate walking directions.

    When we checked in, we were very pleasantly surprised with the beautiful and spacious room we were allocated. We were close by to the Reception desk. There is a breakfast room nearby, a bathroom, one other guest room, and a common room with a couch where you can sit and enjoy a hot drink. The receptionist was very kind and friendly, and she was helpful with information about best places for foreign exchange, and different bus numbers, and walking directions to get to the Old Town.

    It was a cheaply priced accommodation, excellent breakfast, lovely room, friendly staff.

    We also found an Uzbek cuisine restaurant with an excellent value "business lunch" in the same street. The "business lunch" was only 3 Latvian Lats each, and pn the day we went, the set menu for the day for the Business Lunch consisted of a large bowl of delicious pumpkin soup, and a large plate of pulau (rice dish with bits of lamb and vegetables, and seasoned with spices), plus tea and Uzbek bread.

    Unique Quality: Great breakfast, clean, pretty good location. We recommend this accommodation.
    In walking distance from the bus and train stations, and also the markets, and the Old Town.
    And there is a bus stop just nearby, if you need to catch a bus.

    quiet, but a little far from center

    by

    The people from the hostel are very nice and helpfull. For 5 Lat they will do your laundry. You can also print documents. There is a fridge. The room is clean and basic, the bed is small. It is very quiet, but a litlle walk to the center. Bus 50 stops in front of the hotel taking you to the center.

    Unique Quality: Quietness

    Directions: Look in a courtyard, the house are funny numbered. You cannot see the hostel in the street itself.

Re: Ballroom Dancing in Riga

by microsensazione

I visited Riga two times these last two years.
Take a look on my travel map and search for Riga: you'll find some tips about.
Anyway as disco I suggest Essential but also some "disco-bars" in old town are good as well as "Radio Bar" or "Pulkvedim Nievens Neraksta".

Travel Tips for Riga

Charming old streets of Riga

by linni52

Spacious, clean city, and full of character. The town of Riga in Latvia, is a nice, clean and spacious city. Much development has taken place since its independence from Russia in 1991. 40% of the population is Latvian, 40% is Russian and the rest is made up of various nationalities. The amount of space in European capitals is always impressive compared to the UK. Nowhere looks over crowed. We stayed in a centrally located hotel called the Metropole, a 4 star hotel, very close to the old city, which is very pleasant and has elegant bar and dining areas.

Much of the history is comparatively recent history, hence a city tour by mini bus consists of a short ride over Timma bridge to the new part of the city and back to the old Riga to look at some of the architecture and this, for £10.00 per person for an hour, is rather steep compared with other city tours than you might experience! Nevertheless, it is an attractive city and has many fine churches and buildings. The streets of old Riga are charming and full of character, and it is a pleasure to walk and explore.

A building built for Stalin in the early part of last century stands prominently over the city, and used to be a hotel for Market Farmers when it was first built, but now serves as a building of science. We went to the top of the building for an arial view of the city. A guide accompanies you for about 15 minutes, giving you a brief history of the building and of the city, and then you are left to your own devices to wander around at your leisure. There are several museums in Riga, including the War Museum and Museum of Occupation. These are worth a visit, and some of them have free admission There is a huge daily market in the city, and hours can be spent walking round this vast area of fruit, fish, food, clothes, souvenirs, and everything you can think of. The fruit is in abundance and so wonderfully fresh and cheap.

Art Nouveau/Jugendstil

by call_me_rhia

Riga is supposed to be the city with the finest collection of art nouveau buildings all over Europe. Its historic centre, in 1997, was inscribed to the UNESCO world heritage sites.

Art Nouveau/Jugendstil is an international style of decoration and architecture which developed in the 1880s and 1890s - sometimes it is also called Liberty. Emphasis is on the decorative elements (sometimwa symbolistic) of the building's facades.

Two names, to mention the best-known ones are Gaudi in Spain and Wright in the USA. And, in case you are not interested in architecture... what about a designer like Tiffany? This is Art Nouveau/Jugendstil, too.

Bobsleigh in Latvia

by ozzyn

The drivers are from the Latvian National Bobsleigh team and they have the 'Need-for-Speed'. They will run you off the edge and down a thrilling Olympic standard track where you will go over 100 km/h for a 1-minute ride that will simply blow you away!! As you hit the last corner named ''The Wall'' for obvious reasons, you can hit up to 7G!! AWESOME

The central market

by shiran_d about The central market

There are many small stalls and some times people standing on their own selling products.

Five huge aircraft hangars which were erected between 1924 and 1930. Any thing from a needle to sofa. Good and affordable prices.

Old Riga by night

by johnsakura about Old Riga by night

Now this view is even more impressive than the last one. This picture was taken from the west river bank, the Daugava River. You can already notice mnay monuments that are iluminated. The Old Riga is full of interesting and important monuments that are very interesting to visit either during the night or day.
