Sakta flower market

Author: Anothertravelguide.com0 COMMENTS

Latvians often present flowers as gifts when visiting their friends and family members. This national, floral cult amazes tourists and reflects a Northern weakness for these living embodiments of the sun and its warmth.

The Sakta flower market is open 24 hours a day and has been one of the most popular places to purchase flowers for decades. During the spring, summer and fall, notwithstanding its unremarkable architectonic makeup, the market is akin to a flowering, Garden of Paradise. During the winter, the selection is still noteworthy and many traders even use the warmth of candle flames to protect their blossoms from the cold.
