What do I need to know before moving to Riga?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Riga, they said...

"Riga is the capital of Latvia and is a vibrant and diverse city. It is a great place to live for expats, with a low cost of living and a high quality of life. The city is well connected to the rest of Europe, with an international airport and excellent public transport. English is widely spoken in Riga, making it easy for expats to communicate. The city has a rich cultural heritage, with a variety of museums, galleries, and other attractions. The climate in Riga is temperate, with cold winters and warm summers. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Riga is lower than in many other European cities, so it is important to budget accordingly. Finally, expats should make sure to research the local laws and regulations before moving to Riga, as they may differ from those in their home country," said another expat in Riga, Latvia.
