    • Amber - where to buy and what to watch out for?

      Riga Dec 3, 2016 at 6:47 AM

      I am heading to Riga in January and am wondering if anyone has any experience with buying amber? Of course I want a decent deal but I am also told that there is synthetic amber as well. What should I look for or watch out for? Does anyone have any suggestions on where to buy it? The Central Market keeps coming up as a place where they sell it, is this a good option? Please advise! I don't want to come back with plastic! Thanks!

      I consider the trip to Lithuania and Latvia seaside this July (2+2children by car).
      1.I am thinking about setting "my base" in Pape Lake area for some days.I expect not overcrowded (hopefully almost empty) beaches, and an interesting sight -Pape Lake itself. I can visit Liepaja and Palanga in rainy days. Is that correct?
      2.Is Aizpute interesting to visit?
      3.Is Kuldiga itself worthy to visit (apart from the waterfall)?
      4.I would like to go further north- to visit Vintpils- Kolka (is it interesting area?)- Roja-National Park near Jurmala (is it interesting?) and city itself-Riga and coming back through Bauska (is there 3-rd-(means 15-17 July 2005) weekend of July medieval music fest?) and Rundale.
      5.Will I miss something else worthy to visit in Kurzeme?Is there something else interesting for children (8,11) in this area?
      4.What could be the average and minimum price/per person for acomodation in a private house or a camping hut - simple (no radio or TV but convenient bathroom/WC)standard in such area? Maybe any recomendations? Maybe quiet or wild camping places also for tents?
      5.Has anybody heard anything about canoeing on Bartuva river in Lithuania or Latvia?
      6.Could anybody reccomend other easy, short,nice (1-2 days)canoenig in Kurzeme?
      7.What is specialite de la maison in Latvia?
      Thanks for answer.
