Riga Old town


It is quite early, however the alarm is ringing and we have to get up.
First we want to visit Riga old town and later we are driving with Zane to the coast, to the sea.

Zane drops us close tot he Central market in Riga. We waltz over the market. “I am missing a market like this in Munich” Astrid says.

rom the Central Market it is just a stone’s throw to the Riga Old Town. We are walking the way.
Riga Old Town looks quite nice. There are a lot of restored houses. It has the charm of an European Old City with winding side streets.
The Orthodox Church is really impressing. You should not miss them when you are visiting Riga.
We are going further through the Alberta iela. The street is famous for their jugendstil houses. The most houses are restored or the construction works are still in progress.
