Riga is a city you cannot experience sitting huddled by the fire place. Step out, walk around and see as much as you can. Keeping these criterions in mind, the best time to visit is during the summer. Between the months of June and August, the streets are bustling with activities and populated by tourists with warm sunny days and pleasant nights.
The fall and spring seasons are when tourist crowds are fairly thin and off season rates apply. Just check ahead whether or not the city’s major attractions are open during the season. Once the peak tourist season has passed, many attractions tend to stay open for lesser hours or shut down completely.
The winter brings with it rain and snow; a good time is still in store for you if you can withstand the bone chilling temperatures. With minimal sunlight and cheap accommodation rates, one sight you should definitely not miss out on is snow-covered Riga.
