"Expats in Riga appreciate the city's vibrant cultural scene, with its many museums, galleries, and theatres. They also enjoy the city's rich history, with its cobblestone streets, old churches, and historic buildings. The city's nightlife is also a draw, with its many bars, clubs, and restaurants. Expats also appreciate the friendly and welcoming nature of the locals, as well as the city's affordability and its excellent public transportation system," commented one expat who made the move to Riga, Latvia.
"The Latvian culture is beautiful and interesting - as are the people. I appreciate that most Latvians work in Riga (or other city) and then immediately disappear to the woods in their other homes to be out in nature. They are fine, decent people. They sort of just keep to themselves, like most Europeans, and this can be seen by us Americans as being stand-offish or even rude," remarked another expat in Latvia.
