Riga Expat Events

Enjoy your Riga Expat Experience

Latvia's important seaport, situated on the mouth of the Daugava, opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the House of Blackheads, a former guild hall and now the town museum in Riga's central square,, the traditional celebration of Latvia’s Darba svētki, to savoring a dish of pirags. The InterNations network is a place made for the Riga expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in Latvia. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Riga, from ʺWhat are the most famous sights in Riga?ʺ to ʺDo I need at least a smattering of Russian and / or Latvian in everyday life?ʺ
