Riga in Latvia was another port on the Baltic cruise that is in Northern Europe. How did I spend a day in Riga, Latvia?
It was my first time there and this was a surprising little gem. Riga was a cute, small town with little markets, nice restaurants and quirky shops.
Eating in Riga
We went to a restaurant called the Key to Riga that was set back into the middle ages. It was fantastic and the waiters were dressed in medieval outfits and the menu was so funny!
All the dishes had names, my favourite was ‘Chop ’em off!’ which was bull’s testicles in cream sauce, I didn’t order that though!
I had a starter of hearings which was in the shape of a heart and then we had a selection of pork served on a shield and sword plate. The presentation of the food was well thought out. I recommend this restaurant if you ever go to Riga.
Whilst we were there the weather was cloudy with a little rain, but 19*C, so quite pleasant compared to some of the other Baltic ports.
My packing tips for Riga are to bring comfortable walking shoes as there are cobbled streets in the town centre, a rain jacket, wear layers and of course an umbrella!
- Weather: Summer months between 15*C – 21*C
- Language: Latvian and some English spoken
- Currency: Euro
- Top Tips: Wear layers as the weather changes a lot in one day!
