NicePlace Mansards, located in a peaceful courtyard in the very center of Riga, is a place of books and cultural gifts. It is truly a nice place, in its cozy atmosphere you can find a wide range of local and foreign authors’ books – mostly in Latvian, but also some Latvian literature translations in foreign languages. In addition NicePlace Mansards offers locally produced paper goods and souvenirs like notebooks, cup pads, bookmarks, postcards and more – all that decorated with Latvian historic, cultural, ethnographic and natural motifs.
One of the recent novelties at NicePlace Mansards is the collection of larger black and white photography prints of Riga and Latvia that can become an interior object or a great gift to a friend. The author of the photography is NicePlace artist Zane Ernštreite.
NicePlace Mansards is the place for the ones who love to read, for this reason a lot of book presentations, meetings with authors and lectures about literature and culture take place here.
I absolutely love this place because it is one of the few bookshops where you can also find a corner to sit down, have a coffee break or a glass of wine with a great book. Because of the free wi-fi it’s great for working or studying for longer hours as well. This definitely isn’t a regular bookshop, it has a special aura and this is probably why it’s always full of creative and artistic people.
