Tomando cervezas , en Riga .
Cheers  ,  Riga .


The capital of Latvia . The largest city in the country . A third of the population in the country ,  live in Riga . Aproximately , 700 000 people . Architecture is very modern and beautiful . I like the city crossing by a river . Downtown is very small and nice to walk around .

About gastronomy . They usually use potatoes  in the most of their dishes . My favorite was a salty yoghurt , very similar to Ayran ( turkish salty yoghurt ) . As street food they have a lot of bakery during the day . At night beer is very common , with the nice weather . Riga was very crowded at night . Bars and restaurant were full of people . It was high season , so many tourist .

Its very interesting country to visit . Its very new , they got independent from Russia at 90 ´s . Summer is the best season  , the weather is really good . My routine was tourist thing in the morning : House of the Blackheads , Freedom Monument and walking around downtown . At night , the plan was hanging out . Bars close  very late . At summer , when you are coming back home , the sun is already shining .

Prices are generally not very  expensive . Despite of his currency latvian lat . When I was there , it was stronger than euro and English pound .  A big curiosity I didnt know !! But prices were cheaper than Estonia and more expensive than Lithuanian ,  if I compare with the Baltic countries .

I met Spanish people and I spent a few days with them in Riga . Not too much tourist in the morning and too much nightlife .

From Riga I visited Liepaja . A small city on the South of Latvia  . On the way to Lithuania . I was just walking around a few hours . The weather was really bad . So I finally decided to continue my trip . I didnt spend a night in Liepaja , I was run out of time .
