Tango at the Market
The newly reopened Āgenskalns market is hosting a tango night on Saturday, June 4. As of 18:00 professional dancers will entertain visitors, but you can also take part in a tango flashmob. It is also a great opportunity to take a look at the revamped market and try out the cafes and bars!

You can take advantage of the (promised) sunny weekend and visit the University of Latvia's rhododendron park and breeding nursery 'Rododendri' (location here) in Babīte. Ticket price EUR 5.
