Christmas in Riga
Christmas in Latvia is one of the favourite and most celebrated holidays of the year. And what kind of Christmas could it be without a Christmas fair?
Christmas fair on Livu Square in Riga’s Old Town is a place where anyone can go back to the land of childhood! The scent of gingerbread cookies, mulled wine and roasted nuts along with children’s laughter and joyful Christmas music – it’s a miracle of Christmas in Riga, the spirit of winter holidays!
In kiosks around the square Latvian crafters sell their artworks – knitted hats and socks, ceramics, Latvian delicacies and much more. If you feel cold and hungry, just come to one of the kiosks with warm drinks and snacks. Old Riga will take your heart away and this will be a Christmas that you will never forget!
