      Which town to visit near Riga

      Latvia Jul 21, 2015 at 5:20 AM


      This weekend we (wife+ 2 children 2-4 y.old) plan to spend in Lavia - 3 days. I think to visit some town not far from Riga for day + night and next day return to Riga. Bauska? Sigulda?....
      It must have good bus/train connection with Riga, max. 1 hour travel.

      It mustn't be TOP tourist attraction, just simple town with some interesting/historical sight, local cuisine restaurant, etc. Which town would you recomend? Not expensive/cheap accomodation there? How to get there from Riga bus/train station?

      Thank you!

      About restaurants where local people eat

      Riga Region Jul 5, 2014 at 3:55 PM

      I will be in Riga next week for two nights and the tour operator will get us to Lido center to have dinner at a traditional atmosphere.But places that the tour operators mostly get you to,are touristic places that do not have much sense to me.I would like to have dinner at a real traditional place that the locals prefer and also want to spend less money what the meal really worths.
      Could you please send your advices about reastaurant names and if possible about prices.
      Thanks a lot in advance.

      Any advice is gladly accepted

      Riga Jun 25, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi to all,
      I will be in Riga for two days and the tour operator advices us to visit Sigulda ,Jurmala, Bauska and Rundela but I am not sure as tours quite often take people to places that don't come first in the list of the places to worth seeing.
      Is these destinations are worth seeing or is there any other place that are prevail in the order?
      Would like to learn what transportation is best (more important cheaper) to visit the above four places and other advised destinations?
      Also would like to have local cuisine for dinner and perhaps have a break in a good pub or beer house.
      But as you would appreciate, touristic places are quite expensive and not always the exact quality.
      I prefer to investigate the city by myself and would be happy to hear all your advices.
      Thank you all for your interest.

      A few hours in Riga

      Riga Jul 29, 2013 at 2:52 AM

      We (a family of 3: child 8 years + parents) are having a 15 hours stop-over in Riga the coming Sunday. As we arrive very early in the morning, expecting to have slept zero hours, our primary concern is to find a room where we can rest for some hours before doing a little sightseing.

      Can you recommend a suitable hotel (clean / reasonable price, close to either airport or city)?

      Next month we will travel to Latvia, driving from Estonia. Which is the best place to change currency? Are credit cards generally accepted? I mean, in hotels, restaurants, petrol stations… not for small expenses. In case we miscalculate our expenses and stay out of lati, are euros accepted?
      Thanks in advance.
