Roja Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 9 photos

Roja is one of best known Latvian fishing towns. During tsarist Russia Roja was important ship building place. In Soviet times it had a fishermen kolhoz (kind a collective farm, but for fishermen). It was very rich kolhoz, but with the collapse of Soviet system and coming of capitalism a lot of things changed and the people of Roja lost their wealth. You can learn more about this town here: www.roja.lv. Although I have no tips about it, but you can visit Maritime museum of Roja (I hope it has some information also in English) and there are also few accommodation places in the town.
