Explore Riga ourselves 

 1. Riga unique: 

Visit to Central Market of Riga.

 It is not only one of the largest marketplaces in Eastern Europe in area, but also one of the most visited, as 80,000-100,000 people shop there per day on the average. Architecturally-imposing food pavilions, built in the 1920s, are Riga Central Market’s calling card. Originally used as military airship hangars, they were later transformed into market venues. Riga Central Market is unique not only with its pavilions but also with its old warehouses or the so-called spikeri (from German Spéicher), which have now been turned into a hip arts&entertainment quarter.In 1998, the vast territory of Riga Central Market was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list.  https://www.rct.lv/en/
