Our beautiful city of Riga has many charms. Visitors flock here from all over Europe, and even further afield. Our beautiful architecture, rich history and welcoming hospitality have helped turn the city into one of the premier destinations in the region.

But one thing most guests, and even we locals, could do without is the winter weather. For even though the snow turns our old town into a winter wonderland, it does become very cold indeed.

Luckily, there are many things you can do to protect yourself against the frosty condition. Savoring a hot chocolate or perhaps a mug of mulled wine in one of our many cozy coffee shops, or going for a strenuous walk can help keep the cold at bay. But nothing works better than enjoying a sauna!

The sauna has a long history around the Baltic sea. The tradition of warming up a small log cabin with hot stones goes back many centuries. This sort of sweat lodge has helped the hardy people who have made this corner of Europe their home stay warm and healthy despite the harsh climate.

Did you know that ever more men choose to have a foot massage? The trend has been ongoing for a while. But is expected to explode in the new year!

The signs have been around for a while. Men have discovered many new things lately that used to be only for us ladies. Such as skin creams, manicures and moisturizers. Now the time has come for foot massage!

There are many good reasons for this.

Of course, men also like to be pampered. And a foot massage is a lovely way to give yourself a well-earned treat!

But you also get a lot of other important benefits. Obviously, your feet are in action a lot of the time. And even though guys tend to wear more comfortable footwear than us girls, their feet can still ache at the end of a long day.
