Upenieks and Zaprauskis were worried that each negative experience means that at least
20 tourists won’t return to Riga. To avoid this, the two businessmen warned the readers of their guide,
Riga In Your Pocket, to avoid Groks. a Riga pub. Diena confirmed this by reading the guide, which has a
printrun of 15,000 and which is read by many of Riga’s visitors… It advises readers to “Avoid this
place [Groks] like the plague."

Tops for Central and Eastern Europe. Back in 1991 during a long night of drinking,
living in Vilnius came up with the idea to create an online city guide for the Lithuanian capital, which at
the time had no telephone directory. The result? This online collection of locally written, frank, lively
and informative guides to more than 50 cities across the region, from Derry to Tartu. For most cities,
content runs deep: there are more than 30 restaurants and 11 clubs listed under Brasov, for example. Plus,
news, maps and blogs. You can even tune into a local radio station. Browse around the site for interesting
finds, such as a Prague hotel that was formerly a theater and still retains original features, including a
full size stage and balcony boxes.
