It is expected that the number of tourists in Riga has reached about two million in 2015, Riga City Council representative Laila Ivana told the BNS news agency December 26.

She told BNS that Riga had also ranked fifth in a competition on Europe's best destination in 2015 on e-tourism platform europeanbestdestinations.com.
