Riga is the perfect starting point for travellers who want to see the best that Latvia has to offer. Cafes, bars and restaurants allow you to enjoy the atmosphere and look out over the busy streets and cobbled squares. This quaintness is juxtaposed with brash new buildings and cheap Riga hotels which opt to use acres of glass rather than ancient stones.
A two and a half to three hour flight to Riga is to be expected for anyone travelling in from the UK. Riga flights land at Riga International Airport and you will only have a six mile onward journey to make so transfers can take under 20 minutes if traffic is light.
Getting around after cheap flights to Riga is easy if you book car hire from Riga Airport. For those who want to stick to public transport there is a good network of trams and buses and there are also plenty of local taxi operators, make sure you get them to operate the meter when you hop in to avoid being stung. Many visitors choose to rent bikes for a more scenic tour of the city.
Riga's Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it contains various museums, the Town Hall and St. Peter's Church, which is Riga's oldest. Riga's Dome Cathedral sits in the centre of the city and is famed for its large organ. There are numerous other attractions which you will have to discover for yourself by booking Riga flights!
