PRACTICAL INFO

Getting to the venue

From the airport

Take a taxi
You should take either the Baltic Taxi (they’re neon green; can’t miss ’em} or the Red Cab (strangely, they’re white) OR install and use the BOLT app (works similarly to Uber).

Taxi companies are obligated to tell you how the fare is calculated and if there will be any additional fees. SO ASK THEM! šŸ™‚

Bus nr. 22
The bus leaves from the other side of the airport parking lot on the right hand side. You can buy a ticket at the vending machine at the bus stop or at the driver. Take the bus to “DaugavgrÄ«vas iela” stop and then walk to the venue.

Getting around Riga

Taxi
Are you noticing a trend? šŸ˜€ We recommend you install and use the BOLT app as it’s super cheap. Alternatively, you can always call a cab. You should take either the AirBaltic taxi (Call or WhatsApp +37120008500).

Public transport
Riga has great public transport that’ll take you more or less anywhere. Get the Moovit app for the simplest way to plan journeys around town. You can buy a single journey (or multiple journeys) at E-talons vending machines or at Narvesen kiosks. A single journey costs 1,15 euro. You can also get a ticket at the driver, but that’ll cost 2 euro per journey, and have exact change or not more than a 10 euro bill.

Where to eat

Olimpia
The Olimpia shopping mall is right next to the venue. There’s a big Rimi supermarket on the ground floor that’s open from 09.00-22.00. There’s a food court on the first floor that’s open from 10.00-21.00 where you can get things like coffee, burgers, a curry, and local food.

Riga Old Town
Head over the bridge to the old town and roam around. It’s got (almost) everything. LIDO is the go-to-place for traditional Latvian food. You can also go to the Gastronomy Pavilion at the Central Market for a poke bowl or vegan food.
