Royal Square Hotel Riga Classic Room

Royal Square Hotel Riga was our choice for a short overnight stay in Riga. Even though being rated five stars, we didn’t really feel like staying at a luxury hotel. The room while being quite cozy was very small. The breakfast we had the next morning consisted of nothing but two small buffets. However, our stay at Royal Square Hotel Riga was not a bad one!

Daugava Riga

Running in Riga is a very special experience. As I already mentioned in my first review, running in most Eastern European cities is quite challenging. Rarely any of the cities has real running paths or routes that are amazing for running. However, I enjoyed discovering the old town of Riga as well as running along the Daugava, the biggest river in the city. Find more content about Riga on our city page!… Read More

Running in Riga

Running in Riga is a little tough compared to other European cities. The capital of Latvia has some nice routes, but there are no dedicated jogging routes or anything alike. Especially when your hotel is not located in the inner city, there are not many options for running. However, I did find a real park that’s awesome for running. Not too big, but quite nice!

National Library in Riga

Riga is the capital of Latvia and also part of UNESCO World Heritage when it comes to the old town. Nevertheless, Riga does not experience an influx of tourists like other Eastern European cities like Prague or Budapest. Strolling through the city is very enjoyable, the architecture and the old buildings are stunning, and everything except the airport may be reached by foot if you have patience and endurance!
