Behind the St. Peter’s Church in the Skarnu street is a small square with some restaurants. We choose this place for a dinner.
The place seems also of great popularity among bridal couples, for first wedding photos. We watch this for a while.
At the next table sit three persons, two men and a woman, who in turn attract the attention of guests at another table.
We asked the couple next to us, who they are and learn that they are famous members of a band, but one couldn’t tell us the name.
Now I took the opportunity to make some video clips of them. They have a little dog with them.
The woman then tells me that they have it the first day. They take great care of their little darling, who keeps them pretty busy.
The second man had gone for a walk. When he returns, his colleagues have already left. Searching, he circles the church a few times.
On the square is a memorial to the Town Musicians of Bremen, a gift from the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen. It has been created by the artist Christa Baumgärtel in 1990.
Back at the hotel, we meet Vilmantė Matutienė, who contacted us via the internet. She manages Piggy Bike Tours, based in Klaipeda, Lithuania.
She would have loved to show us her hometown and we would have liked to go there too, especially as it would not have been too far away. Unfortunately, our time frame did not allow this. So she suggested us to meet us here in the hotel.
On our recent trip through the Baltics, we had been surprised by some heavy rain showers. So we wanted to know what they do in such a case. She explained that the group is always accompanied by a bus.
In case of rain, you switch into the bus and drive on until the rain shower is over, which happens generally quite quick. It is a nice evening with Vilmanté and we are glad to have met her. More information on Piggy Bike Tours
Wellton Riga Hotel & SPA
At the end of our stay in Riga, we would like to introduce the hotel of our stay in Riga, the Wellton Riga Hotel & SPA*. It has been in operation for only a few years.
Modern equipment and technology characterize the overall impression. A spa is available at the hotel and can be used by some rooms for free.
The location is perfect. Within walking distance is the center of the city, the dock for the canal boat.
The train station and the bus station are on the other side of the street, accessible via a pedestrian underpass.
The hotel is clean and the staff very helpful and nice. Particularly noteworthy is the excellent breakfast buffet, includes a glass of sparkling wine.
