Did you know that the tradition of Christmas trees originated in the Latvian capital of Riga? Sounds like the perfect place to spend a festive city break to me!
Riga Christmas Markets
Using Trivago and my Flight Finder I’ve managed to put together some great deals for a lovely little city break to Latvia’s capital. With its historic centre filled with cute architecture and cobbled streets, it’s a wonderfully cosy place to be when the Christmas markets are in full swing!
As well as your return flights, you’ve got your 3 nights at the fantastic Rixwell Centra Hotel. This 4* number puts you right in the heart of the city, meaning that you’ve got loads of restaurants, cafés and shops all on your doorstep! To sweeten the deal even more, you’ve got complimentary breakfast included during your stay too, so you’ll be able to stock up on plenty of energy for the sightseeing to come!
The main market in Riga plays out in the square in front of the beautiful cathedral. You’ll find loads of lovely stalls selling all sorts ob – and a glass or two of mulled wine certainly won’t go amiss either! You can really feel the sense of tradition in the markets here – you’ll be head over heels in love!
