One of, the many, great things about Riga is that you can get everywhere by foot. Hence, for every visitor I would suggest taking an hour or two to go for a stroll and grab a beer in one of the many beer gardens. 

For the more adventurous - a trip out to Sigulda to experience many of our activities! A must do is the bobsleigh!

A visit to Cafe am Neuen See. Berlin is full of lakes, and this cafe is located next to the Neuen See lake in Tiergarten. Their huge beer garden is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon. My wife once spotted Angela Merkel in there, queuing in the line like anyone else - a great showcase of how democratic Berlin is.

Take a walk along the narrow streets of the old town in ancient Bukhara and feel the atmosphere from “1001 nights”. Engage with friendly Uzbek people and taste the fantastic food. This is the memory that will stay with you forever.
