The Riga tram network forms part of the urban transportation system in Riga, the capital and largest city of Latvia. It is operated by the Rigas Satiksme.
Trams in Riga made their first appearance in 1882, and have been in operation in the city longer than any other mode of public transportation. Today, the Riga tram network comprises 8 lines and is 182 kilometers (114 miles) long with 231 stops. Annually, it has nearly 33 million passengers.
Planning to travel to the capital of Latvia? Below are pictures of Riga trams and streets from my walks through the city.
Line 11 travels between the center of Riga and Mežaparks, a district of picturesque Art Nouveau villas standing amidst the lakeside forest.
You can find all the information you need about public transportation in Riga on the Rigas satiksme website.
