Although our brain tells us that we must believe the scientists who keep warning us about the evils of global warming, it’s hard for a Riga resident to understand the concept, especially given the terrible, for lack of a better word, ‘summer’ that finally arrived on these Baltic shores in August. A rainy July, which was more akin to April, and only a few precious weeks of sunshine in the following month wasn’t enough to fortify us against the coming onslaught of autumn.So what to do to avoid what locals refer to as fall depression? High on our list would be that quintessential Latvian experience of attending a Dynamo Riga hockey match at Arena Riga. For more highbrow pursuits check out our events listings for opera, ballet and classical music performances. Shopaholics can explore the massive hangars of the Central Market, while nature lovers should choose an appropriate day to revitalise the soul with a hike in the Ķemeri National Park. The darkness of autumn will soon be upon us, but Riga In Your Pocket’s got your back.
