Urgent assistance re: Latvian rail services

by MUFConTour

Can anyone, especially a VT member in Riga!, help me please!!
Myself and 4 friends are flying into Riga on Monday 19th May and trying to get to Moscow for the Champions league final on Wed 21st. We have Russina Visa's but I am having no luck in getting any sort of assistance or help from latvian railways (www.ldz.lv) as their international ticket office doesnt have anyone who can speak english, though apparently they are unable to take bookings over the phone or take credit card details in any case.
Is there anyone who is prepared to help a fellow VT member by simply contacting ldz and asking whether there are still common seats available on the 004R (Yurmala) train departing Riga on 20/05/08 @ 18.10 and on the return journey the 003R from Moscow on 22/05/08 @ 21.02 (Their live interactive timetable suggests there are 67 places on the outward, and 80 on inward available. As we will be arriving in Riga @ approx 11.00 on 19/05/08, I'm hoping it will be just a case of getting the bus straight to the station(22 0r 22A) and buying tickets, but I'm desperate to know whether this is going to be possible or do I need to look for an alternative.
Thanks in anticipation!
Please email me direct any info - gimcrack1971@hotmail.com

Hi!
I just checked the really miserable website of ldz.lv and yes, there are seats for 19/05 and 22/05 available. No online booking. From Riga, not Jurmala. The airport buses do not take you really near the railway, I suggest you take a taxi, should not cost too much.
Have you thought about contacting a travel agency to organize this for you? Try Latvia tours, they speak English!

Yes, as mentioned, Bus 22 does go near the Bus Station and the train Station is nearby. A alternative is to take a Bus if you cannot get the train. Do not use Bus 22A as it does not go any further than the Cathedral area. There will be someone at the bus and or train Station that will speak English. But go slow with them so they understand what you want. Repeat slowly, and ask them to repeat if you don't know what they said. I have been there 6 times and never got lost and I only speak English.

Travel Tips for Riga

New Riga

by HORSCHECK

Outside the Old Town (Vecriga) and the park boulevard ring lies the so called New Riga. Among many business and residential buildings, it is also home to many interesting churches and parks. One of the main sights is the Russian Orthodox Alexandr Nevsky Church in the Esplanade Park at Brivibas iela, just in front of the Latvija Hotel.

Riga guide book

by Raimix

I was very happy having guide named "Riga this week", you can take it somewhere in Riga old town for free, or, lets say, in bus station, airplane station. Another good choise is "Riga in your pocket", but this one cost about 1,5 euro.

Biggest Market I have ever seen

by chocca about Riga Market

Riga Market is absolutely massive, it consists of about 5 old aircraft hangers, each selling different types of food. i.e. one will sell meat, another will sell fish, another sells bread products etc.

And outside they sell allsorts of other stuff mostly boots and coats but then again it was winter when I was there. It just goes on and on though

The city authority signed a deal with the government to buy the Zeppelin hangars abandoned by the German Kaiser's army in the western Latvian region of Kurzeme (near Vaiņode). So Zeppelin hangars become a landmark of Riga for both Rigans and the city's foreign guests. Despite the fact that no aircraft has been ever stationed where the hangars stand today, the origin of the market pavilions has been always a subject of rumours and speculations.

Do you wanna have fun?

by agentmulderch about Fashion Club

That club is in the Vernissage complex that is 5 minutes stroll from the McDonald' s in front Hotel de Rome.

That club is called Fashion club for a good reason....you're gonna find the best models you've ever seen.....Didn't you know that Latvia often organize contests to recruit models for Elite agency?

Latvia is famous for having the most beautiful women in the world. Fashion club offers nightly models show and of course these models are clients of the club.

Surprisingly, they are not that superficial and arrogant as you might think.

The club is quite big, it had two main rooms and the drinks are very reasonable, around 2 Euros for a beer. Not specially but be quite smart.....If you want to a attract a model.....don't go with shorts and trainers....remember it's fashion club, everybody is very well dressed and you will see the highest class of Latvians and Russians...

Latvian Railway

by ExVoto

Well, it is imposible to compare Latvian railway with French TGV, but we seeking to make it better and better. During last years few directions was canceled but major cities are still awailable with railway. It is possible to take a train for few stations within Riga as well. Though, the train is more expensive than busses.
