Beautiful Christmas Markets
Christmas is a very important event for Riga, the Latvian capital. According to a legend, it was here where the very first Christmas tree was decorated in 1510. The Riga Christmas markets await visitors in a unique architectural setting, in the lovely Town Hall Square. Along with traditional festive food, hand-made decorations, Christmas clothes and gifts, the markets offer several special events intended for an audience of children such as a carousel of wooden figures, ponies and a horse drawn carriage, animal corner, or a cat house.
