Riga Zoo

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.

Riga Zoo was founded on 1912 October 14, and is still opened every day all year long, except during 2 national holidays: 1st January (New Year) and 24th June (St. Johns day).
