Riga is a wonderful city to explore during the summer months. You’ll find that the weather is not too hot. It does rain, especially in the late Spring.
You can easily tour around the main parts of Riga on foot, however, if you want to use public transport, which to begin with can be a little confusing, then the city has an extensive network of buses, trams and trolleybuses. You can also take taxis if that’s your preferred choice.
You’ll find exploring Riga pleasant and safe. Crime rates are low in the city and even pickpockets are not common. Like all travel though, you should remain vigilant and it’s best to keep your belongings safe. It’s better to be safe rather than sorry.
