  • Check out Latvia's vivacious city of Riga

    2011-08-31

    Travelers looking to experience a city that is full of modern amenities enveloped by old-world charm can visit Riga, Latvia. This exciting destination is part UNESCO World Heritage site and part innovative urban design that brings the best of the old and the new together in one place.

    Central Market is a must-see when journeying to Riga, as it has been one of the most vibrant bazaars in Europe since the 1300s, Lonely Planet reports. Although it has changed locations, it has retained its design and charm by offering some interesting and traditional items for purchase, including fresh produce and soviet-style souvenirs.

    The Lativan Ethnographic Open-Air Museum does not offer halls of historical artworks, but rather displays a massive outdoor village that replicates old countryside buildings and structures, including a working windmill.

    Culinary selections in Latvia are diverse and eclectic. Hungry visitors should make reservations at the Carlstons restaurant in downtown Riga. According to the establishment's website, this eatery offers both a casual lunch and an elegant dinner experience, featuring favorites on the menu such as wild boar soup with shallots and fresh thyme.
