Arriving in Daugavpils

Students should plan to arrive in Daugavpils at least one day before their course begins, since lessons usually start at 9 am.

Independent Arrivals

As a rule, students of our programs land in Riga International Airport (RIX). We recommend going from the airport to Riga Central Railway Station or Riga Central Coach Station. This trip takes about 20-30 minutes by bus route 22 or by taxi.

Comfortable trains and buses regularly run to Daugavpils and the ride takes 3 to 4 hours. Please check out the train schedule and the bus schedule. Our representatives meet students in Daugavpils and take them to their accommodations.

Transfer Service

When a group of students from one university or customer organization plans to arrive at one time, we suggest using our service to transferring the group from the airport to Daugavpils and then right to each student’s residence. After a course is complete, we may also provide transfer back to the Riga Airport.

In Daugavpils each student will receive a welcome kit on arrival including:

  • a set of stationery;
  • a set of maps of Daugavpils with all important points marked;
  • a mobile phone with a local SIM-card with a small initial deposit;
  • course materials.
