Riga - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Good for everyone, though keep in mind it is a smaller city. Singles, couples, families all seem happy here. - Mar 2022

Good for everyone, good mix of things to do. Good outdoor activities, bars, restaurants. Many festivals and cultural events. - Jul 2017

As a couple with no children, we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We can go to the ballet, the cinema, out to eat, etc. I can imagine that for singles who want to meet new people, it may be difficult, though the Internations group organizes various activities where people can come together. Embassy Riga has a number of families with children, and our wonderful CLO is always organizing activities and outings. - Sep 2016

As with 95% of foreign posts, single guys have a great time; single women, not so much. Good city for couples. Lots of families at post, most seem pretty happy with it. - Jul 2010

All of the above. There is not a lot to do outside of Riga, and Riga is mostly a party town; however, families can enjoy Riga with parks, zoo, beach, etc. Good place for single guys; single women might find it challenging to find someone. - Aug 2008
