Highlights: Old Town Hostel, Opera, Ballet, Markets
Description of Highlights:
•Old Town Hostel – Walked off the bus and into a group of new friends. This hostel was so warm and welcoming and had a very convenient location to the city.
•Opera – We got tickets to see “The Barber of Sevielle” the tickets were only about $5.00 each!
•Ballet – Because of the affordability of tickets and close proximity of our hostel we decided to indulge in another evening of art and entertainment. The ballet performance was “A Midsummers Night Dream.” After the ballet we attended a Latvian house party…..not your typical tourist attraction!
•Markets – Riga boasts some of the largest and most unique markets in the world. You can purchase fish, fruit, guns and anything in between. Most of the markets were all in Zepplin hangers that were used during the Nazi occupation.
