The Flea Market (Latgale Tirgus)

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.

October 17'th 2014: Latgale Tirgus the Flea Market of Riga is about to be documented in playriga.com:


The Flee Market in Riga is where you can find very cheap second hand products like: Electronic equipments, suitcases, old coins, books, and basically many old products that are sold for very cheap prices.

Most of the sellers in the market speak Russian only but few can also speak English.

Note that taking pictures is not allowed in Latgale Tirgus!

Personally I like markets since there is an atmosphere there of the working people that are buying and selling.

I bought in the flea market a Nikon Camera, in a very low price of 20 LV (including charger + memory card of 4 GB)

I expected this camera to stop working but surprisingly it still works and had no problems since I bought it a year ago, so I guess that I made a good deal there.
