Why choose Riga as a Hen Party destination?
Riga is known as the love child of hen parties and Eastern Europe – this Latvian capital is young, fun and ready to mingle. The animated city has a bubbly young population that will have you hen party hop, skip, jumping until the break of dawn. Keep on your toes with Riga as the daytime ain’t for resting your hen party either.
Riga is the largest of all the Baltic states and is quickly becoming the most popular Eastern European hen party destination. Situated on the Gulf of Riga, at the mouth of the Daugava, it’s unsurprising that Riga serves as a real treat for water-loving hens. Go water rafting, canoeing and even experience a Dolphin Aqua Jetpack experience… wow.
Riga is also home to some mean waterparks with all the shoots and slides that hens could ever dream of. Other great adventures by land and by sky include quad biking, clay pigeon shooting and bungee jumping!
As the enchanting and historical centre of Riga is a UNESCO world heritage site, it’s definitely worth going for a midday stroll on the hen party to at least say you’ve seen sights like the freedom monument and St.Peter’s Church.
The inner quarters of Riga are also alight with trendy and bespoke shops where hens can pick up a few gems to turn everyone at home green… or amber with envy. (Riga is famous for its amber jewellery which would make a great hen party souvenir or gift for the head hen). More of Riga’s favourite items are its exquisite chocolates and pastries, your hens will certainly be satisfied as they prepare for the big Riga hen night out.
A bit of boozing is integral to any hen party and in this regard, Riga does not disappoint. Take the evening to savour some traditional Latvian beer paddles or vino before you move onwards and upwards.
Riga is known for its lively terrace bars where hens can sip some vino and dance until they watch the sun go down over Riga’s gorgeous cityscape. After dark, hens can get a table at one of Riga’s cheeky cabaret shows or turn up the heat at an electric ballroom… and all that jazz.
