  • Stunning city to walk about! Absolutely spotlessly clean! Sidewalks are wide and everywhere. There are a multitude of transit options. Electric scooters, Electric mopeds for sit down style from various companies for rent. Public transit Trams, trolleys and busses. There are even a couple of car rental companies with cars scattered about the city available by the minute, hour or day that include the fuel in the price. Cafes and restaurants are everywhere with most any cuisine you could want on offer. The green areas are everywhere as well and again amazingly clean! I will be back most certainly and hope to get a long term residence permit!
  • The old town is home to churches and old buildings of the best places in Riga and it is clean and there is plenty of space to walk around.
