Arena Riga Reviews
Watched an ice hockey game - great music and atmosphere! Reasonably priced and would definitely return. Taxi from the old town was less than €10 and then we had a nice stroll back afterwards. more »
First time at this arena and first time at an Ice Hockey match and enjoyed the experience even if it was the two worse teams (Dinamo Riga & Dinamo Minsk) in the KHL this season. Good views and... more »
Love the live band at the Riga Dinamo game on September 5. Can someone tell me what the name of that band was . I am from Canada and was in Riga to meet new family. I was so impressed with that band that was playing at the game. I really loved that band. Help me find the name of that band please.
Arena as such is great, but facilities of each specific event depends from organisers. Probably this is the best place in Riga for big indoor events. So Arena is great, but event which you are going to attend could vary.
