We couldn’t go all the way to the Baltics without taking a trip to the Baltic Sea! On Thursday morning, our intrepid travelers took the bus to the resort town of Jūrmala on the Gulf of Riga.
Our afternoon was free, allowing us to explore Riga on our own. Some of us visited the Riga Central Market, which is the largest market in all of Europe!
Thursday ended with our one and only concert in Riga. We performed in St. John’s Church, a 13th century Lutheran church located in the Old Town. St. John’s Church is the oldest church still actively used as a house of worship in all of Latvia.
Thursday was our last night in Latvia – up next, Estonia and the city of Tallinn!
