City of Riga becoming more tourism minded?
Historically, Riga is not the most tourism-minded city. Read on.
Recently, foreign tourist companies complained about not enough tour bus parking in downtown Riga. Riga City spokesmen responded by noting “there are already two spaces” for busses and that Riga was a “wonderful city to see by foot.”
To be fair, Riga has taken some steps to improve its taxi service (recent tariff reforms), though many argue those were taken at the behest of the drivers themselves, not foreign passengers. Forgive us if we view taxi reform in Riga with a jaundiced eye and aren’t too optimistic about an anonymous complaint line.
