Poprad, gateway to the Tatras


For the upcoming winter season, we will launch a new route between Riga and Poprad, Slovakia. Located at the foot of the High Tatra Mountains, 2500 metres above sea level, in northern Slovakia, Poprad is famous for its picturesque historical centre and as a holiday resort. The nearby mini Alps provide breathtaking
scenery throughout the year, plus a host of outdoor activities, from skiing and snowboarding in the winter to hiking, mountain biking and rafting in the spring, summer and fall. If you are more of an indoor person, then the Tatra Gallery or the AquaCity water park are just two of many interesting places that one can visit. Also, the Caffe Trieste, located inside a bell tower dating from 1658, provides the best Italian coffee in town!


Starting December 13, airBaltic will operate one weekly return flight on Saturdays, with tickets available starting EUR 55. A full schedule of airBaltic flights can be found at www.airbaltic.com/timetable. In addition, those who fly to Poprad can bring along their ski equipment at no additional charge!
