Riga Central Market

One of the Riga panorama’s elements will always be those cylindrical buildings right by the Riga Bus Station, Railway Bridge and Daugava river. That is Riga Central Market.

This central market is largest not just in city of Riga , but in the whole Baltic region, as well as one of the largest markets of its kind in Europe. It is approximately 72,000 meters squared in size, with more than 3,000 trade stands and is visited by almost 100,000 visitors per day. In summer time these numbers can even double.

The reason why the market has this interesting exterior look is because these semi-cylindrical buildings are converted WWI German Zeppelin hangars. It took 7 years to build this marvelous construction when in Autumn 1930 it opened its gates to the guests.

The market consists of 5 hangars, or ‘pavilions’ as they call it in Latvia. Each of those focuses on a different type of a product: meat, fish, vegetables, dairy products and etc. So if you are after only fresh products from local & eco-friendly farmers of Latvia, this should definitely be your ultimate choice.

Riga Central Market is definitely a place to head down to for a proper shopping mixed with a cultural experience of Baltic region and Eastern Europe.

Tour Guide Legal Requirements

If the nature of the tour is that the guide is 'interpreting the cultural and natural heritage of an area', Latvia requires the guide have a guiding license. A person giving tours such as the 'best nightlife spots', 'shopping and fashion tour' or 'restaurant tour' for example, does not require a license. This definition follows the European standard for tour guiding (CEN).

Licensed Tourist Guides are the only professionals permitted to conduct tours in all sites and museums within a city. Licensed guides are required in those areas where the local authorities state that one of them is mandatory.

To become a Licensed Tourist Guide, candidates must pass an examination given by the local public tourist authorities.

All BestRest Tours guides have met our BestRest Tours Guide Requirements which includes warranting that they can legally give the tours they offer.
