Meet you at Laima clock in Riga!
Riga

An old favourite place for meetings, this corner on the edge between Old Riga and its newer part for years remains under “patronage” of a tall yellow clock of Laima chocolate factory. In Latvian “Laima” means happiness, and for many of us, city dwellers, this place holds quite some positive memories.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
