Riga – a city that celebrates autumn

To brighten up the time before winter’s arrival, Riga is celebrating the autumn season. The lively capital of Latvia is a glamorous getaway and all about brightening up your November. Enjoy the city’s Art Nouveau architecture, renew your wardrobe with Latvian designer clothes, and dine in first-class restaurants and new vegan establishments. This is a particularly special year for Riga, which has been designated a European Capital of Culture for 2014. The city is offering a full spectrum of exciting cultural
activities, including performances by well-known classical music and ballet stars at the Latvian National Opera, the spectacular city light show Staro Rīga and some of the boldest experiments in the music world at the Sound Forest festival. No matter what your culinary, fashion and cultural tastes, you are bound to be delighted in the Latvian capital.

November 18 marks Latvia’s Independence Day, when various celebratory events are held all across the country. In Riga the festivities begin with a parade by the National Armed Forces, followed by various shows and exhibitions throughout the day. The celebrations traditionally end late at night with a magnificent fireworks display over the Daugava River. Find out more at www.riga2014.org. Tickets to Riga available starting at EUR 29 .
