SOAR - Riga Chapter

Riga joined the SOAR family in May 2018. Armenians in the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania settled there mostly during the Soviet occupation of the Baltic States. Armenians in Latvia number around 5,000, living mainly in Riga. The community is honored by an Armenian khachkar (cross stone) in the middle of Riga. In the heart of Riga is “Armenia,” a restaurant offering an abundance of Armenian dishes and European cuisine that will satisfy even the most sophisticated gourmets.
