One of the highlights of Riga in winter is the Christmas Market. Located in the central Dome Square, it’s a true winter wonderland. Sip on hot mulled wine, sample Latvian delicacies like gingerbread cookies and sausages, and shop for unique handmade gifts.
For a cultural immersion, visit Riga’s impressive Art Nouveau district, where snow-covered facades take on an otherworldly beauty. The city’s museums and galleries offer respite from the cold, with exhibitions that showcase Latvia’s rich heritage and artistic prowess.
