Ideas on how to brightly and festively spend the final week of the outgoing year


December is unimaginable without a Christmas market in Old Riga. Dome Square and the streets of the Latvian capital resemble a fairy tale thanks to bright garlands and lanterns, stalls with fragrant mulled wine, roasted almonds and pastries. In addition, at the fair you can buy Christmas gifts for your loved ones from Latvian craftsmen - a patterned pair of mittens, a skillfully carved wooden candlestick or a jar of homemade honey.

For connoisseurs of cultural events, performances and classical music concerts, there are many worthy events in Riga.

  • Latvian National Opera (New Year's gala concerts from 27 to 30 December)
  • Christmas concerts at the VEF Palace of Culture
  • Theatrical performances in the Chekhov theater, Digital Art House, Latvian National Theatre.

If you want to actively spend time outdoors, be sure to visit the central parks of Riga with Christmas markets or go to an outdoor skating rink!
For Christmas, the best parks in Riga, such as Vermanes Park, Bastion Hill
Kronvalda Park are decorated with garlands, which creates a fabulous atmosphere. There are also Christmas markets in the parks.
Ice rinks
