Christmas Markets in Riga - 4 days

21-May-2024

My friend and I had a wonderful experience last December, 2023, at the Riga, Latvia Christmas market. The accommodations were excellent. Breakfast buffet was the best ever. Our personal guide was great: knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. And more than that, the price was so affordable. Looking forward to the Lithuanian Christmas market this upcoming December.
