Amber - where to buy and what to watch out for?  (7 Answers)

I am heading to Riga in January and am wondering if anyone has any experience with buying amber? Of course I want a decent deal but I am also told that there is synthetic amber as well. What should I look for or watch out for? Does anyone have any suggestions on where to buy it? The Central Market keeps coming up as a place where they sell it, is this a good option? Please advise! I don't want to come back with plastic! Thanks!

Any advice is gladly accepted  (18 Answers)

Hi to all,
I will be in Riga for two days and the tour operator advices us to visit Sigulda ,Jurmala, Bauska and Rundela but I am not sure as tours quite often take people to places that don't come first in the list of the places to worth seeing.
Is these destinations are worth seeing or is there any other place that are prevail in the order?
Would like to learn what transportation is best (more important cheaper) to visit the above four places and other advised destinations?
Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house.
But as you would appreciate, touristic places are quite expensive and not always the exact quality.
I prefer to investigate the city by myself and would be happy to hear all your advices.
Thank you all for your interest.

Lighthouse  (1 Answer)

I was wondering if anyone knows if you can get to the lighthouse located at the beginning of the river (harbor?) as you approach Riga from the sea. It is a black and white lighthouse. I would have to rely on public transportation and walking if I wanted to go see it, so if any details about that are available, I'd really appreciate the information!
