At the Info I got a free tourist guide with a small map - at least - and the info from the English speaking staff that bus No 22 departs in front of the terminal to Riga down town. You pay inside to the conductor and charge extra for baggage. Altogether the 20 min. ride to the Bus station costs 0.60 Ls (0.90 EUR).

Tourist stands in Keju street Contrast of old and New - State museum of Art in Elizabetes street Second hand market in Krasta street at the river Daugava House of Blackheads

The store near has open till 21:00. The supermarket 00-24 credit card
  • bread 0.4 800g
  • meat 2.7 1kg
  • yogurt 0.37 400g
  • beer 0.3 0.5l

The taxi ride from the center costs 4 Ls for the 5 to 6 km - 0.60 Ls /km I called and got good new renovated room in the Juniks for 14 Ls a nice double room. They are still renovating the old Soviet Hotel and the entrance reception where under construction. You get good value for the price however. Drawbacks are the little hot water coming out the cran, the restaurant has noting to eat but I got a local beer for 0.50 Ls. No telephone in the room. One main light only. No elevator.
