Riga is the capital city of Latvia, a former member of the Soviet union, only declaring its’ independence in 1991. This historic city has been popular with stag and hen groups for many years now, which is hardly surprising given how beautiful the city is, not to mention the sheer variety of things to see and do whilst over there.
Flying into the city couldn’t be easier as it’s accessible from most UK airports and, as it’s a member of the European Union, you have the luxury of being able to use Euros. It also boasts hotter weather than anywhere in the UK in the summer, but colder winters than in the UK too, which opens up a whole new range of activities that you couldn’t do over in the UK, for example, Bobsleighing! That’s right, in the winter you can take a ride with a former member of the Latvian Bobsleigh team and hurtle your way down their Olympic Training venue at breath-taking speed. Truly a once in a lifetime activity. For those that enjoy more serene experiences there is spa access to help your hens unwind as well as day trips to Jurmala Beach, which is a beautiful beach situated just outside the city centre. Riga really does have it all and it’s is often overlooked by its more famous Eastern European counterparts.
