Places for partying, visiting, old places, all what latvia got for tourism :)
Keywords: Visit places5
You can stay for months in Latvia and never get bored :) For party Riga center and old town is the best in all Latvia even if you can find smaller fun parties in many cities. To visit well Sigulda and Turaida, Livani national park and seaside. Ventspils Kolka or more north the rocky seaside after Tuja. But well every region of Latvia has many spots worth to discover and a good summer party near a fire or a sauna can be as fun as a big club in Riga
but i mean russian family origin of Latvian, i repeat, latvian girls but with russian ancestrals. in riga you can easily meet those girls near the hotel roma, while the real latvian girls are around the park and the university entrance. the best place to have a chat is the skyline bar at the reval hotel but you should be there around 7 pm and be somehow smiling and well dressed and of course available to offer to drink.
Anyway, if you did want Russian girls in bikinis I understand Spain is the best place for that or Cyprus (greek side)
Sigulda, Liepaja, Saulkrisit, and many other nice places. More importantly is th share these nice experiences with good friends and family. Think about your best memories and stories - almost always the best memories and experiences are with people we care about. Also, pirts was a great experience for me the first time I went, and bobsledding in Sigulda, and the Ligo nakt - now that is a terrific tradition! Enjoy and take care of your lovely country
go to Balvi. Churchis, museum and parks all waiting for you!
Come on guys, it's about enjoying time, it is not about girls, I don;t think people are coming to latvia just for russian girls, If it;s about russian girls then go to russia,belrussia, and ukraine more big countires,
@ waltere, it;s not about spending money,,,,it's about torrism and spending time, If it;s about money then florence isn't best place to spend money, and florence isn't world most expensive and wealthiest city....
i would prefer that he goes to latvia. in florence we are not interested in welcoming such people (cheap tourist with tent and fast food lover who does not spend lot of money and dress lik a tipical nordic tourist and does not take care of his body and his soul)
Well, I would say that you find what you are looking for. So if you are looking for russian girls in scanty bikinis, you will find them. If you are looking for other things - you can also find those other things.
But it is all up to the author of the question. Now we have stated various options, so he can pick the ones he likes. Or alternatively skip the uncultural Latvia and go to Florence instead.
sorry but it is jurmala offering to some this show not the other way around.
there is a proverb in my country saying the following "you find people and food that the country you are visiting is deserving"
you can critice but should accept this statement
I'm also confused, Ian :D But apparently each of us has his own expectations of tourism, some apparently need their russian girls in little bikinis.
I thought this blog was about tourism, now its gone to beaches and small bikinis
i like to stay side by side with riga russian origin girls in jurmala becuase as foreigner i can appreciate the local customs traditions of small bikinis tatoos and thinghs like that. Of course from a cultural point of view, Jurmala and in general Latvia are not comparable to Florence or other cultural town of Europe.But i am used to see the half glass full rather than empty contrarly to you...hugs, walter
Walter, I have rarely ever been to Jūrmala because there are much better beaches in Latvia than the ones where you sit side by side like fishes in the can. A bit further north there are much better seaside areas.
Loeve dude, last time I visited the Ventas Rumba was this winter. Also a nice place
ooooh thanks for providing nice guidance....
I have heard about widest waterfall of europe is in rumba... is anyone being there?
dear deevee you've intentionally forgotten the beautiful seaside city of Jurmala which is famous for his mansions in wood now bought by rich russian kriminals and the main boulevard where joung ladies are selling strawberries and lots of italians are walking up and down trying to chat with local folks. the trip from riga is about one hour by autostop and it is worth spending a day downthere.
For partying you have to go to Riga and see what it offers there (I'm no expert on that), but for visiting places I'd suggest Rundale palace (near Bauska), Sigulda and Turaida and the region around it. Actually the whole of Gauja National Park is quite scenic and if you are not afraid to get lost in forests I could tell you of some little known places there. Always a fun option is to go canoeing in Abava, Salaca or Gauja (if you go with a group of friends). And there's little interesting things hidden everywhere but it will not be like going to Egypt and seeing the pyramids. Nothing of that grand scale.
cheers man !!!!
Depends what you want to see, there are about 4 information offices in Riga that can help you
