Getting There

By Car

Reaching Koka by car is probably the best method as you can then travel freely around the area and not be restricted by the public transport. In order to find nice isolated places around this area you own transportation is the best method. From Riga it is very easy to reach Kolka and you have plenty of places to stop along the way and take in the sites.

By Bus

There are not so many regular buses running from Riga and tickets can be purchased from the Central Bus Station also known as Rīgas Starptautiskā autoosta. Tickets are fairly priced can can be purchased in advance from the desk or from the drivers at the time of departure. Kolka is best reached by your own means as the journey time can sometimes exceed 4 hours.

Post

Latvijas Pasts is the national postal service of the country and has relatively fast, affordable and reliable services. They have both mail and express mail service, domestically and internationally. For sending letters, postcards and parcels internationally, it is easy to check prices at their post tarrifs. Prices for international mail start at around 0.45L for postcards within Europe, 0.50L outside Europe, stamps for letters are slightly more expensive. It usually takes at least several days up to a week within Europe, but around 10 days to North America for example. Domestic services are faster of course, usually within 2 days. Post offices are generally open from 8:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday, and 9:00am to 4:00pm on Saturday, though large central post offices might keep slightly longer hours and can be open on Sunday sometimes. Latvian post boxes are colored yellow, and postage stamps can be bought in post offices or news-stands (kiosks). Specialized package services are provided as well by companies like DHL and UPS, among others.
