Hello; We have a one day stay in Riga, taking a tour from the ship, what advice would you give us for items/gifts to bring home? What might the weather be like in mid August?
Number one gift would be Riga Black Balsam of course. Not so popular with locals, but surprisingly loved by tourists.
What is this?
Before reading the answers, that was my first choice in gifts. Think of it as a sort of Latvian brandy. I had my fair share when I was there and would suggest that as well...
