How to get to Liepāja: all necessary information how to get to Liepāja you’ll find https://liepaja.travel/en/plan/how-to-get-to-liepaja/

  • Those who are planning to come by car. There are special parking places near or at the hotel.
  • Those who come to Liepāja via Riga Airport, the easiest way to come to Liepāja is by bus (3,5 hours). Liepāja Bus Park in collaboration with Baltic Taxi offers its passengers a direct connection to Riga International Airport without entering the city centre. This service costs an additional €1.42. You must book a seat on the bus at least 15 minutes before it departs from Riga Coach Terminal by calling +371 63 422 754 or +371 26 393 694. Go to the “Baltic Taxi” office in the airport 5 minutes before the bus departs from the bus terminal. The taxi will then take you to the “Mežmalas Iela” bus stop to get on the Liepāja-bound bus.
  • Train connection between Riga and Liepāja runs only on weekend, so you can forget about this possibility.
  • There are direct flights from Riga to Liepāja. But the flight timetable is somewhat bad for our meeting. But you can still check on www.airbaltic.com
  • Based on arrival times, the organizers may be able to provide a transfer from and to Riga airport, but it will be based on the times arriving to Riga airport. So at the registration, please fill in the Riga airport arrival time and wait for information about the transfer.
