      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.

    • Lighthouse

      Riga Jun 4, 2012 at 1:01 PM

      I was wondering if anyone knows if you can get to the lighthouse located at the beginning of the river (harbor?) as you approach Riga from the sea. It is a black and white lighthouse. I would have to rely on public transportation and walking if I wanted to go see it, so if any details about that are available, I'd really appreciate the information!

    • Riga in One Day - Suggestions?

      Riga Region Apr 21, 2012 at 8:25 AM

      We will be in Riga for one day onlu, as a stop on a cruise in late August. We had planned on taking a tour offered by the cruise line. How difficult is it to see Riga on one's own? Is it small enough that one can walk from place to place, or are we better off taking an organized bus tour which includes about 2 hours of walking around the center and the other two hours getting an overview from a bus?

      We welcome suggestions from those who are familiar with the city.

      What would you say? Is there a chance to get to the flight?
