Tom, are you referring to some specific part of the Riga? Im thinking to move for 3 months there.

Riga must be avoided at all costs. I left Rock Cafe in Riga Old Town at 2am to go back to the apartment on Saturday night and work up in the hospital with my face black and blue. I also had my phone and wallet robbed. I'm from London where walking around is safe, not in Riga. It's a very dangerous place unless you're only planning on going out during the day.
