This week, Lufthansa has chosen a phenomenal city that is off the beaten path for most travelers, however is a hidden gem in Eastern Europe. Though I have never been there, I have many relatives in Slovakia that visit Riga the way most Americans visit cities such as London, Paris or Rome. Each time I speak with a cousin, aunt or uncle about their travel, they always rave about 2 cities, Vienna and Riga.
