Looking for unusual / alternative sightseeing in Riga
Looking for unusual / alternative sightseeing in Riga(11 answers)
My friend and I will be visiting Riga for the first time April 28-30. Of course we want to check out the traditional sights like the beautiful old town, St. Peter's Church, Vermanes Park, etc.
However, I'm also interested in seeing "Alternative Riga" and would appreciate your suggestions. Some of my interests are - Graffiti and street art, dive bars, relics from the soviet occupation, punk rock clubs, abandoned or re-purposed factories, etc.
A few places that sound interesting to me are: KGB Building Museum, Latgales Tirgus Market, and Chomsky Bar.
If anyone has more suggestions or comments about the places above, I would be very grateful.
Thanks a lot!
