Riga, the capital of Latvia will host the first event of the snooker 2016/17 season for a third consecutive time. The Riga masters 2016 is the first ranking event on the snooker calendar.
Filled with culture, beauty and a city with so much character, Riga really is one of the cities of the world well worth visiting. From baltic dining, cheap booze, tourist attractions and most of all, snooker, Riga should be on your list of events to attend this year.
Our favorite snooker stars will be in action and with it being the first event of the year, there is no doubt, the competition will be fierce, which should make it good watching!!
But that’s not all!! Riga is actually a beautiful city to visit with some fantastic culture and is one of the most cost effective cities on the snooker tour. That coupled with the fact that the Riga Masters takes place in June, means for a good price you can see the Riga Masters and a beautiful city at the end of June.
We have actually done some research on this as it happens. We found flights to Riga from as little as £74 return and accommodation in Riga starts at about £50 a night for a decent 3* hotel!!
The snooker Riga Masters takes place on Wednesday the 22nd June until Friday the 24th, meaning you can avail of the mid week special offers available with travel.
Beer in Riga costs about £1 a pint and a nice 3 course dinner for £15-20. Not bad if you ask me!!
So if you would like to attend the first snooker event of the year and couple it with a inexpensive city break during June, then i suggest you get looking at the snooker Riga Masters as potential.
