Riga Travel Guide

Riga Shopping

Riga is a good place to buy local crafts, alcohol and foodstuffs, but imported goods are very expensive. One of the best souvenirs to buy in Latvia is amber, for which the country is world-famous. Look out for amber set in silver jewellery: A&E and Tornis are two well-regarded boutiques. Other good things to buy in Riga are woollen jerseys and hats with distinctive Baltic patterns, the local liqueur Black Balsam, and World War Two memorabilia. Bargaining is not expected and unlikely to be successful. A great shopping experience is a visit to the huge Central Market, located in five cavernous pavilions. Everything from fresh fish, fruit and honey, to cheap clothes and pirated CDs can be bought here.
