"A weekend in Riga" Riga by into-thin-air

Riga Travel Guide: 1,775 reviews and 4,955 photos


Now that budget airlines are flying into Riga, this makes it an Ideal choice for a City Break, Riga is a Beautiful city with Loads to See and Do, Prices are Very Favourable, Especially for food and drink, But it is also possible to find budget accommodation so it needn't be an expensive destination. The International airport is only 10k from the Centre of the city and it is served by a regular bus service.
We chose Ryan Air to fly, the return fare from Liverpool was £62 Inc, We stayed at Elizabeth's Hostal which is very well located and only a five minute walk from the Railway Station, another couple of minutes from the International Bus Station and about a 10 minute walk to the centre of the Old Town.
Lots to see and do, both by day and by night -- So If you are looking for something new then why not check out Riga -- You won't be disappointed !!

Pros and Cons

    Your taxi ride from the airport *was* very expensive (it should cost less than 10 lats) Lots of nice photos here...:o) (I'm going back to Riga in December, expecting *cold* weather...;o)
