Bookshops in Riga

by chrisvandenbroucke


In june I'll be in Riga for a short citytrip and as I am a crazy bookcollector, I'd like to find out some addresses for secondhand bookshops in the city. I am desperately looking for 4 translations from the nineties of 4 detective novels by the American Raymond Chandler (Sieviete ezera - Nevadas baze - Šantaža - Karstais vejš)
Maybe also an open air flea market?
Can't find these books on the Internet, so I have to come to Latvia myself...

Thanks very much in advance,
chris from Belgium

I found 2 adresses for second-hand book stores in Riga: Lacplesa iela 27/2 and A.Caka iela 95. There was one more in the Old Riga - Riharda Vagnera iela, close to the Centrs shopping. Not sure if still there.
Good luck!

I guess you should put advertisement in on-line services like,,
Depending on how old the books are they could be also in antiques shops.
Am I got you right - you are interested in books transleted into Latvian and bublished in Riga? If you provide with more informations about these books I could help to put this info in Latvian advertisement service portals.

Travel Tips for Riga

UNESCO World Heritage

by tini58de

The Historic Center of Riga was enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997. Here is what the official website explains about this decision:

"Riga was a major centre of the Hanseatic League, deriving its prosperity in the 13th–15th centuries from the trade with central and eastern Europe. The urban fabric of its medieval centre reflects this prosperity, though most of the earliest buildings were destroyed by fire or war. Riga became an important economic centre in the 19th century, when the suburbs surrounding the medieval town were laid out, first with imposing wooden buildings in neoclassical style and then in Jugendstil. It is generally recognized that Riga has the finest collection of art nouveau buildings in Europe."

No junk food in town

by Vija_v

In Riga you wont find a lot of places for the junk food. Here is just very few McDonalds and pizza places. That kind of food is not very popular in here and mostly people prefer to have a soup during they lunch and not hamburger or slice of pizza.

Watch hundred years old wooden architecture

by ExVoto

Nice and silent place to take a walk and look at hundreds year old wooden architecture where before WW II Latvian intelligentsia lived. Or take a sight on lake where windsurfists have a good time. Silent and safe area, just take tram 10, step out at ZOO and choose direction. The most suitable time spring and autum. Sometimes discoveries in Mezaparks surprises even me.

Lively Bar in centre of Old Town

by into-thin-air about "The Dickens"

If you are looking for a Lively Bar then a good bet is "The Dickens" Right in the centre of the Old Town, Populated with a good mix of locals and tourists, A pint of local beer is less than £2 + it has a good range of imported beers, a little more expensive but still hardly a rip off !! Don't miss it !!

From the airport

by bonio

From the busy international airport bus #22 runs to the city. It leaves from the back of the carpark, follow the signs. Cost (2006) is just 0.2 lats, pay the conductor, journey takes around 20 mins. For the city get off just after crossing the river as it continues to the bus / rail stations and then a little further.
