Customer Travel Tip: Careful what you drink in the alcoholic sense, the beers and cider are it seems all very full strenghth 5% or more and the spirits extraordinarily tasting and strong. Not wise to indulge if you nwish to keep your brain synapses into old age or a functioning liver .... Life can be interesting without putting yourself at risk/becoming incaopable

Liked: museums exhibitions ; latvia occupation, natural history, war,(in powder towerr), Art Noveau, baltic way & jazz photos outside rail station (they are in Riga), Jurmala city museum too : ceramic, fashion, sculpture, art, photogra[phy (thats just ride away) Its Central so also made it to Cesis Castle,& Sigulda Castle. The blackhead building, main square and the Art Noveau buildings A greatv delight.

Disliked: Lack of a freely available transport map from the transit authorities. First I tried to memorise it from the ONLY example I first found at the COACH station. The (thank you so very very much) the hostel reception printed out an A4 (pretty small but very useful to me) map that the tourist offices seemed unable or unwilling to do

Customer Travel Tip: Go to the Majori - the beach is great :D

Liked: The city is just beautiful! I would recommend the walk along the river - the view is breathtaking. Also we went on the trip to Majori - to experience the atmosphere of that town and to relax on the beach - and I would highly recommend that place! Just 25 minutes by train from railway station in Riga but totally worth it!!!
