Good for us that we have the fourth highest tourism growth in Europe.

I think we were a relatively unoticed country so far. We are in Schengen for 7 years and in eurozone for almost a year, I guess it's very easy to travel here now. Riga is the biggest city in Baltic region with biggest collection of Art Nouveau architecture in the world. Also half of our land is taken by forest. Apparently that's a major tourist attraction.

Have no idea. But it already became an object of clashes between government and opposition

Slovakia was placed in top 5 past years and the number of tourists is still growing (it really is hard to find an empty seat in pubs in Bratislava during summer). The drop-back is really huge so it could be a statistical failure possibly.

Nothing, Czech National Bank depreciated the Koruna last year, making the holiday in Slovakia 13 % more expensive.

And the Ukrainians are busy with war right now.

Travelers of the world!

I've never been to London and next week I'm going there for a business trip: where can I find something good to eat, say, in Soho or Charing Cross? My boss is paying so money is not (that much of) an issue. Would I want to go to a pub or a regular restaurant? What's the usual closing time of such establishments?
Thanks

Plenty of nice places around Covent Garden, Leicester Square, Piccadily Circus, Regent Street. Stay away from Soho. Horrible place with strip clubs where they don't mind ripping tourists off.

One of my favourite pubs is just off Trafalgar Square. I can't remember the name, but head there and I'm sure you'll find it And you haven't been in England if you haven't eaten pub food!

At a pub, the ambience would be more authentically English, although is that part of London overrun with tourists?

My point exactly. <- that's a warm English beer.

Not really. Locals want to eat as well after a hard day in the City.

I'm sort of thinking of it as Times Square East.

I did eat at a pub there once, right before attending either No Sex, Please - We're British! or The Mousetrap.

I'm sure I'll find many of them! Is that the Silver Cross? the Old Shades? The Ship and the Shovel?

I really don't remember. It has been ages since I last been in Central London, and I used to be there for work all the time. Now I normally stop at Bromley when going into London.

A Latvian car has been parked without paying for parking in my city for at least 2 months now. The municipality says they can't tow the car because it is parked in a legal spot, the owner just doesn't pay for parking. So the meter maids keep adding tickets below the wiper blades every single day.
