"When buying gifts like the..." Riga Region Off The Beaten Path Tip by mjkammer

Riga Region Off The Beaten Path: 45 reviews and 37 photos

When buying gifts like the local amber-jewellery, compare shop prices with street merchants. They will most likely have lower prices. Prices are presumably fixed. Street-merchants concentrate around churches.

In Riga, foreign currency is accepted at reasonable rates, escpecially for USD and DeutschMark (now Euro).
