I am planning to cycle from Riga (Latvia) to Kaliningrad (Russia) during June next year.
I am Thai and do not need visa to enter Russia, what I am seeking is advice on the routes, cheap accommodations, road condition etc.

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)?

Hi! We are planning a trip to Riga at Christmas and are wondering about opening hours for shops and restaurants on 26th December. As it is a public holiday, should we expect most tourist shops and restaurants as well to be closed?
I'm going to Riga in the beginning of December, and I was wondering whether there are any intenetsites with a summary of all concerts and other cultural events going on in the city, preferably in English?
Thanks in advance!
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!
I have seen a picture of several men holding up a globe, and was wondering where this picture was taken - exact streets. Could anyone tell me? Thanks
I've got an eight hour flyover in Riga this June during night (11 pm - 7 am). What do you recommend? Should I just book a hotel or makes it sense to go for the cities nightlife (or even to snatch some impression of the cities sights)?
Thanx in advance!
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.

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?
am planning to stay 2 days in Riga (27 to 29 Dec) and would like to stay in the center of the city.
May you advise me a hotel near restaurants & pubs area?
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?
Whats weather like in Riga end of October..??Can we expect rain??Or just cold temperatures??Thxs!
I know it is short notice, but I am attending a meeting in Riga on Monday - and will have to travel at weekend. would anyone like to meet for coffee or dinner?
Are there any one day tours from Riga to Vilnius??
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!
My original plan was to arrive in Riga on 2 July, go to Kaliningrad on the 6th and fly to Copenhagen on the 8th from Kaliningrad via Riga.I have decided not to go to Kaliningrad and thus will have 2 extra days. I've been to Riga and as much as I like it, 2 more days wouldn't be possible. Where should I go?
Does the Riga Free Tour still exist? Their internet address no longer works... (rigafreetour.com) Thanks
I'm on short visit in Riga ... couple of days.
Anyone wants to show me a city? or advise where to go etc ...
I'm about to spend a few days on my own in Riga and am on a diet... Can you recommend restaurants with healthy options or a good salad bar? I'll be staying in the embassy district. Thanks!
We will arrive on Riga Airport and need to go to Jurmala, I know there is an easy option by going to Central Station and then take a train, but if we go by taxi, what would that approximately cost??
What is the best and easiest way to get from Riga Airport to Jurmala?
I think we have to get from the Airport to Central Station and then take a bus to Jurmala,
hope someone has the answer?
