Midsummer and Riga

by traveladdict86

Does anyone know what's going on in Riga from 17th of June to 21st of June? Do people celebrate Midsummer there at that point of time and if they do how does it show? Is there something special going on or is the city completely empty?

Some information:
18 – 21 June Midsummer celebrations in Riga; www.rdkd.lv
19 June MIDSUMMER FAIR in the Dome Square www.avesol.riga.lv
20.06.2009 Enchanting of John’s Day in Riga
21.06.2009 Summer Solstice together with Folk group
Look in: http://www.rigatourism.lv/en/systems/eventscalendar/default.aspx .

Even many people will go away from Riga after 20th of June (holidays until 25th of June) there will be a lot of events until midsummer day at 23rd of June.

Travel Tips for Riga

Riga - old town

by call_me_rhia

In 2001 Riga became 800 years old and celebrated its anniversary in style. Hence you can guess that the old town is really old... log buildings date back to the 11th century, while stone buildings to the 13th century. Much of it has disappeared, but not all. Where the old feeling is gone, art nouveau/jugendstil has set in, at the end of last century. In the middle ages Riga was a very rich city - much richer than its neighbouring cities of Tallin and Vilnius - and this wealth can still be seen, in particular in the merchants' houses and in the churches. Look at the details to see how money was floating - or go through the counrtyards... rich people were living lavishly.

Buy a bag

by elPierro

A good example of Russian culture in Riga is buying bags. Some people are ashamed they buy stuff at the market or just like that feeling that you are walking around with a bag of some expensive label. So here's the solution, for a few cents you buy a Dolce & Gabanna bag (or whatever fashion brand) and put your cheap vegetables and pork meat in this bag. That makes people think you just bought expensive fashion while it's just items from the market.

Memorials to those killed in January 1991

by morgenhund

As part of the Latvian defence of the Barricades in trying to protected their newly declared freedom in January 1991, several people were shot dead.One of them was Raimonds Salmins. He along with the other victims has been granted a memorial stone in Bastion Hill park, which separates old and new Riga, in recognition for his heroic valour in defending his country. Even in winter, people come to lay flowers on his memorial stone and pay silent respect to him.

Like something really Latvian? Join famous locals!

by WanderingFinn about Cetri balti krekli

This interesting place is a mixture of many kind of places; meaning that you can have your lunch or dinner here, and later in the evening you can come to this combination of a disco, bar and nightclub.

There is a small entrance fee in the evenings. (2-5 Latis in 2001).

Named after a famous song of the same title (in English "Four white shirts"), this club is the place to go for patriotic or simply nostalgic locals as 90% of the music that is played is Latvian (very nice rock and pop music).

Riga's elite poets and politicians can often be spotted under the brick vaulted ceiling dancing to songs which inspired a proud nation to sing its way to freedom. No dress code.

Riga Airport/Lidosta

by bijo69

Riga's airport is situated about 10km from the city centre. These days it is served by budget airlines like easyjet (my choice from Berlin SXF) and Ryanair. The local carrier Air Baltic has competitive fares aswell, especially from Eastern Europe.
The terminals look like they've been renovated recently and are quite modern.
You can get to/from the airport on bus 22 (from/to the train/bus stastion) for 0,20 LVL and on bus 22a (from/to the Orthodox Cathedral) for 0,25 LVL.
