Why locals love it
In the very heart of Riga Old Town, refined and elegant as the city itself, stands the locals' long time favourite shopping centre – Galerija Centrs. Its history steeped in the 30's, the place has nonetheless kept up with the modern, fashion-loving and busy Rigans offering them the best they deserve, all in a neatly central location.
Why you should visit it
Today the centre hosts 130 shops as well as cafés, restaurants and various other services on four floors. From the most popular grocery supermarket in Latvia to the many different specialised stores, it tops it all off with a carefully selected array of contemporary fashion boutiques.
It is the first shopping centre under a glass arcade in the Baltic states which covers an actual street that hosts regular exhibitions.
