Wireless Internet

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.
Cheers.

Free Wireless internet is available in Riga in many places: Restaurants, Bars, Cafes, etc... but in most of places you'd have to order something in order to get the wifi password (it's very rare to locate an open wifi where you can connect for free without a password).
