Cigarettes Prices

by jorgegomes

Anyone could answer about the price of cigarettes in Riga? I will go by plane from an EU Country, it will be advisable to buy cigarettes from Riga Airport, on arrival?
Thanks

Re: Cigarettes Prices

by ghosthunter

The cheapest cigarettes in Latvia are about 6 Euro's for 200. The branded ones vary between 10-15 Euro's. I have only ever brought them in the city centre so unsure of airport prices, Darren.

I'd say, ones worth smoking (if that's an appropriate expression for cigarettes, anyway :)) will be 2eur and above per pack of 20. Mby they're cheaper in airport, but I wouldn't count on that, you need to check by yourself.

Latvia is an EU country too !! So you will not be able to buy cheap cigarettes in the Riga Airport ! Instead you can buy them very cheap in the shops in Riga..im not a smoker but think I have seen good brands to LVL 1,30/EUR 1,90

Re: Cigarettes Prices

Hello everybody,

I was in Riga on Dec 13-15 2008. It was a big surprise for me, I mean the price of cigarettes. LM Blue label, as well as Red label were 1,15 LVL /20 pcs box (1,67€).

On former visit on July 2008 LMs were 1,29 LVL /20pcs box. Normally the proces goes up but now they went down despite of increase of prices on Dec 1.


I am suspecting that on tourist season there is two way prices; one for local people and one for tourist ones. I am not sure of this but I still claim.

Re: Cigarettes Prices

I doubt, that cigarette prices are season-related; anyway, there's max price printed on the excise tax label (if it is the correct term, that sticker, which prevents pack of being opened, does not come off well and sometimes leaves the pack partially ruined, when finally torn off :)). If someone is trying to sell you tobacco for price higher than this, buy them elsewhere. I highly doubt, that "Narvesens" or "Plus punkts", or grocery stores (Rimi, Sky, Maxima, Elvi and alike) would risk and try to earn extra Ls 0.10 from customers on tobacco.

Re: Cigarettes Prices

by fox_

one more note - excise tax will be raised soon (1-FEB, I guess), therefore there will be changes in cigarette prices (nothing major, though). I have no idea what will they do with already labeled packs - will these be sold for the old price, relabeled, sold for the new price w/ old labels.. Mby others have more info on that one.

Musicians

by Leipzig

Like in almost all European cities you can see musicians on the streets, singing or playing an instrument. But what I noticed in Riga was then all of them were elderly people. I guess that nobody of them was younger then 50. I also saw a lot of elderly people selling flowers or small handmade crafts in the streets.

Kronvalda park

by Inguuna

In the middle of 19th century the park was formed by German rifleman union, and it was closed for other people, only later opened. Nowadays together with the sculptures of park you can see interesting glass pyramids, which are exit from underground parking, and also see colorful fountain.
Kronvalda park is located near Bastion hill.

Good Nightclub

by chocca about Pulkvedim Neviest Neraksta

During the daytime, the club Pulkvedim Neviens Neraksta (Nobody Writes to the Colonel) is a restaurant and bar. At night, it turns into a nightclub.

Nice sounds mixed here, music tends to be local DJ's performing rather than playing requests or abba's greatest hits or best of Kylie. There are two dance areas, downstairs in the basement seems to be more of a chill zone while upstairs is where the real dancin goes on. Lots of friendly people in this club and no kick off atmosphere which was nice. Only downside is that we did not know where to get a kebab after we left.

The club is named after Gabriel Garcia Marquez's famous novel has withstood the test of time and now can be named among the best alternative clubs in Riga. This is a place where young people gather to communicate, enjoy good music or just to hang out. The club is marked by excellent design and different music that varies from punk to fusion and acid jazz. No dress code policy as far as I could see, I went in T-shirt, jeans and Trainers.

Airport Riga (RIX) Lidosta

You can travel by plane from a lot of european cities to Riga. The homecarrier AirBaltic connects Riga with a lot of european cities and Istanbul in Turkey. Also the low cost Airlines Ryanair (since November 2004) and Easyjet provide cheep flights to and from Riga. The Airport has a brand new terminal and is very convinient. With a public bus line in front of the parking place you can get in 25 min to the City Center. Bus line 22.
