Otra Elpa

A cosy charity thrift shop with a tiny café downstairs. A nice place to roam around and find a unique item to take home as a souvenir while also contributing to a good cause.


The shopping scene in Riga is rapidly changing, with many chic brand-name stores opening outlets in central Riga. For those of you who enjoy marketplaces, the Centraltirgus is an enormous marketplace spread over several blocks around the railway station area. Meat and vegetables are sold inside four giant Zeppelin hangars. Outside, an oriental-style bazaar offers just about anything at prices lower than elsewhere in the city.
