Weeks before Christmas are a particularly lovely time to be in Riga. In a traditional Christmas market, which will begin on the first Sunday of Advent, mulled wine becomes the drink of choice as the aromas of cinnamon, ginger, and roasted almonds fill the air. This year, the Riga Christmas market will be even more amazing than ever.
There will be Santa's house to visit, Santa’s little helpers will entertain visitors, and kids will have the opportunity to send letters to Lapland itself! A DJ will amuse customers every Friday throughout the Christmas market, choirs and music ensembles will perform on Saturdays, and folk music will fill the market on Sundays! The caterers will provide special cocktails, sweets and delicacies, modern and wintery street-food menus, as well as traditional Latvian cuisine. Are you looking for a unique gift to give your loved ones for Christmas? Well, this is the place where you should be - local Latvian artisans will offer beeswax candles, various creative kits (such as kits for producing acrylic dishes and door wreaths), knotting supply kits, kits for wall decor, and for casting candles, among other things. Of course, there will also be many traditional gifts like gingerbread and socks and gloves made of wool. Every visitor to the city needs to see it to believe it; it is almost too lovely to be real
