In Riga, tasting the herbal liqueur known as balsam is a must. The best time to do it for the first time is during a walking tour dedicated to finding ghosts. Meet up with the organizers at St. Peter’s Church and be led to places you’ve never been to. Drink some liquid courage as you walk in the dark with an endless narrative of ghost stories. A professional guide will take you safely through Riga’s haunted places, but you’d have to rely on your wits. Not every bachelor party includes ghost stories, so this is a good chance to do something eerily fun and totally out of the ordinary
