Access & Practical information

There are several ways to reach Riga and Jurmala.

By plane

Riga is served by direct flights from almost 100 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. The Latvian national airline, airBaltic, is the official carrier of the Riga Jurmala Music Festival, providing easy and convenient connections to all of Europe and the CIS’ major airports.

Riga International Airport is close to Riga’s city centre, as well as Jurmala. The most convenient way to reach either destination from the airport is by taxi: we recommend Baltic Taxi, Red Cab, and the Bolt ride-sharing app. A taxi ride from the airport to central Riga or Jurmala will take ten to twenty minutes depending on the traffic, and it will cost approximately 15 Euro.

By ferry

For those coming from Sweden, Tallink operates ferry connections from Stockholm to Riga every other day. The ferry terminal is located within walking distance of Riga’s Old Town, making this a smooth transportation option from door to door.

By train

Regular train connections to Riga are available to our Russian visitors from Moscow (twice daily), St. Petersburg (daily) and Pskov (daily). These services are operated by Latvijas Dzelzceļš, and they end at Riga Central Railway Station: located directly at the Old Town border. 

Bus connections to Riga

Lux Express is the largest passenger carrier in the Baltics, offering several daily departures from a range of cities including Tallinn, Tartu, Parnu, Vilnius, Warsaw, St. Petersburg, Moscow, Minsk and more.
