This includes me.
Is Riga pretty? Yes! Did I enjoy my time there? Sure!
However, for me Riga was missing the wow factor. To put it another way, in Tallinn or St petersburg for mention two cities located close, I was stunned by the beauty. I could walk around for hours, just being amazed. This I did not feel in Riga. It was something missing.
Riga might be good for eat, party or go to the spa. I feel like everyone write about how amazing Riga is. Unfortunatly, I did not have the same feel of love for the city. A bit disappointing since I love its neigbours. Maybe they were too hard to live up too!?
Have you ever been to Riga? What did you love the city?
