Crew Center

Latvia at a glance

A modern country in the North of Europe, surrounded by the Baltic Sea. With just two million inhabitants, it's intimate, yet full of energy. Riga is the capital of Latvia, a city with a big heart, a stone's throw from the beach and wild nature that’s perfect for relaxing.

  • The End of Long Commutes

    A twenty-minute car or bus ride by from the city centre will land you at Riga Airport. You can even pedal to work – it is just 10 km!

  • A Family-Friendly Place

    Children can receive great education in one of the international schools. Plus, the city is clean and green, not a concrete jungle.

  • Culture in Abundance

    Opera performances, concerts, ballets – there's a plethora of cultural events to choose from, with world-class artists visiting us on the regular.

  • A Night Out?

    No problem! Riga has great nightlife, and the Old Town is packed with restaurants, clubs and pubs to let you wind down any way you want.

  • Unique, but Affordable!

    The cost of living in Riga is much lower than in most European capitals. Its convenient size means it's easy to navigate, and nothing's too far.

  • Stay Connected

    You won't miss a thing, we promise. Get to Berlin, Vienna or Hamburg in less than two hours, and to Paris, Rome and London in less than three.
