Destination Touchdown… Riga

Destination Touchdown… Riga

Destination Touchdown… Riga 1024 536 micebook.

Latvia’s gearing up for a pretty special party and Mister micebook is on his way… 

On 18 November 2018 Latvia will celebrate its centenary. And rather than setting aside one day for this auspicious occasion, or indeed a year to brand as the anniversary, they’ve settled on a wide range of celebratory events and festivities that will take place until 2022.

And frankly why not – with capital city Riga revered as the coolest capital of the Baltics, its time to discover the charms of the Latvian city. This hip capital has an intriguing historic centre, the Hanseatic Old Town, with warehouses, houses and churches renovated since the fall of communism.

This is the perfect destination for culture seekers – amble down the canal and take a look at the gorgeous Opera House before heading to Zuzeum, a former warehouse which has been reopened as a gallery, and finally stopping at the new and rather cavernous National Library.

Hotel options are plentiful and include the characterful Pullman, and numerous Radisson options including the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel located in the city centre.

Offering 571 rooms and a Conference and Events Center with a range of spaces, the largest of which can seat 1,100 people, it’s an ideal backdrop for larger MICE groups. Post-conference, guests can pamper themselves with a tempting selection of high-quality treatments at the on-site ESPA spa, or take advantage of the hotel swimming pool, fitness studio, saunas, steam rooms and open-air vitality pool.

Meanwhile, steps away from the Freedom Monument and overlooking the Bastion Hill lies the opulent Grand Poet Hotel is also well worth a peek.

Boasting both the largest exhibition centre and largest convention hotel in the Baltics, Riga has been the destination for numerous notable international events including a NATO Summit, the World Ice Hockey Championship, Eurovision, Latvia Presidency of the Council of the European Union and many international conferences.
