Apartments and rooms in Riga

The 2014 Capital City of Culture has steadily grown in popularity in recent years, with a growing creative scene and historic neighbourhoods at affordable prices. Those interested in renting an apartment in Riga will be pleased to hear of its extremely cheap rents by European standards and low cost of living. Apartments in Riga offer plenty of options, from hipster neighbourhoods full of art and colour to the ancient art nouveau style streets of the old town. Riga can offer something for everyone, regardless of age profession or preference.

Rooms for rent in Riga are also plentiful and affordable in old Soviet built blocks, thus the history of the city also contributes to the housing market. Any former Soviet city will show its influences in its architecture, and this is no truer than in Riga, with five old zeppelin hangars serving as the new site for markets, local street sellers and a hub of local economy. With increased international attention from businesses and expats, a new sense of opportunity through commerce and economic confidence has given the city an optimistic outlook for the future and those living in it, thus Riga has accommodated the young local generation that previously would have looked for work elsewhere. This also means prices on apartments in Riga are steadily growing through gentrification and popularity, so come quick!

Apartments for rent in Riga Old Town

Vecriga is the historical centre of the Latvian Capital on the east of the Daugava River and City centre apartments are superbly priced, with small one bedroom soviet-built apartments in Riga going for a monthly rate of approximately 350 Euros a month.
