Latvian Currency (Lat) and Currency Exchange

Playriga.com the site that started as a web site for tourists, evolved to be against tourists (especially sex tourists), afterwards changed again to focus on art and culture and eventually crashed and was restored from old backup!
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.

Important Update!

Starting from Jan 1'st 2014 Riga is entering the Euro Zone!

Euro will be the official curreny in Latvia and It'll be possible to buy in any shop using Euro.
