      About restaurants where local people eat

      Riga Region Jul 5, 2014 at 3:55 PM

      Hi,
      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)?

    • 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.

      Thanks.

      40 minutes between flights in Riga airport

      Riga Jan 4, 2012 at 2:33 AM

      Hello,

      I'm considering a week-end trip to Istanbul.
      I've found needed itinerary with Air Baltic at descent price, via Riga. But the time inerval between arrival to Riga and then departure to Istanbul is only 40 minutes. However Air Baltic site offers this itinerary.
      I wonder if that's a good idea or it's too risky. I haven't been to Riga airport, I don't know hoe big it is.
      What would you say? Is there a chance to get to the flight?
      Thank you

      Air Baltic' prognosis

      Riga Nov 20, 2011 at 9:56 AM

      I want to book a flight in advance operated by Air Baltic. I read that this company is facing heavy financial turbulences, so do you think booking is still safe? Or is it likely to go bankrupt, so that it would be more clever to book flights of another airline?

      Does anyone have experience taking this minibus? I'll be traveling on a Sunday -- will this generally be OK without a reservation? The websites recommends advance reservation, but none of my negotiable payment instruments are accepted. Will 55 Litas cash paid to the driver get me where I need to go, i.e., Klaipeda? ;) Is it possible to purchase advance tickets from the bus station when I arrive in Riga? Thanks for the help!
