Stockholm Riga Ferry reviews

  • " The only way to travel to Riga"

    In mid October my wife and another couple travelled from Stockholm to Riga by Ferry. We read reviews that food and drink were expensive but we found them to be reasonable. The entertainment on board was excellent as was the room accomodations. Sailing was smooth and time went by quickly. If given the opportunity it is the only way to travel.

Stockholm Guide

Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and is spread across 14 islands in the south east of Sweden and lies at the mouth of Lake Malaren, by the Stockholm Archipelago and the Baltic Sea. There are many cultural institutions based in Stockholm and the region in general is home to three of Sweden's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These are the Drottningholm Palace, Skogskyrkogården (The Woodland Cemetery) and Birka. Stockholm was also named European Capital of Culture in 1998. With over 100 museums, Stockholm has one of the highest number of museums of any other world city. The Nationalmuseum is perhaps the most famous and contains the country's largest collection of art. It has some 16,000 paintings and 30,000 objects of art handicraft. The oldest items in the collection date back to the 16th century and has been expanded with works by artists such as Rembrandt and Antoine Watteau.

Stockholm's port is a major gateway to Sweden and is therefore an important port for both freight and passengers travelling to and from Finland, Russia and the Baltic States. The port is close to the city centre where all of the usual facilities you would expect to find in a major city are located.

Riga Guide

Riga is the capital city of Latvia and is located at the mouth of the River Daugava, on the shores of the Gulf of Riga, in the Baltic Sea. Riga, with long and illustrious history and cultural heritage, is a multicultural city which is perhaps because it has always been situated at the junction of some major trading routes. For the city's visitors this is a good thing as there are many things to do and see in the city including the diverse architecture on offer, especially the art nouveau buildings. In fact, because of its collection of art nouveau buildings, which is one of the largest in the world, Riga has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Riga's Commercial Port sits at the heart of the city. There are two primary passenger routes operating through the port. There is a service to Stockholm in Sweden, with a crossing time of around 17 hours, and a service to the German port of Lubecka with a crossing time of around 31 hours.
