Riga

Summer reluctantly arrives in Riga

Summer has finally made an appearance in the Latvian capital and its citizens are finally basking in the comfort of the sun’s warm embrace. Riga’s restaurateurs have unfurled their summer terraces and all seats are occupied now that the sunshine has reached the banks of the River Daugava. If, however, you’re more of a culture enthusiast than a beer connoisseur, check out our extensive events calendar full of concerts, festivals, dance performances and outdoor markets. Curious to see what lies beyond Riga’s city limits? Read our features on the seaside towns of Jūrmala and Liepāja and see if a road trip is on the cards for you. Folklore enthusiasts can also witness the awe-inspiring Latvian Youth Song and Dance Festival in July. Whatever your pleasure this summer, Riga In Your Pocket has it covered.
