Riga's central train station (centrala stacija) is situated in the centre of Riga, a 5-minute walk to the east of the Old Town. (And right next to the bus station.)
The station is spacious and modern, with lots of shops & cafés. There's a left luggage room and automatic lockers available, you'll find currency exchange offices, several ATMs and a bank.
Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
