Best places to visit in Latvia

  • Riga: This is the capital of Latvia, and it's by far one of the most popular places to visit in the country. The old town neighborhood has a medieval look, and yet most of the architecture was built at the end of the 20th century. The Centrs neighborhood is the home of roughly 800 intact art nouveau buildings.  
  • Sigulda: If you drive about an hour from Riga, you will find the town of Sigulda. It sits in the Gauja River Valley, which offers fantastic forest scenery plus beautiful architecture. Here you will find ruined castles, such as the Sigulda Medieval Castle Ruins and the Krimulda Castle. 
  • Jurmala: If you cannot go on vacation without hitting the water, then you can take a short drive to the Gulf of Riga to the town of Jurmala. This is one of the largest resort towns on the Baltic Sea and offers one of the longest stretches of sandy beaches in northern Europe. The town also has an abundance of breathtaking architecture made entirely of wood.

Was a bit wary of this location based on reviews, but had the best car rental counter experience ever. The gentleman I dealt with was very professional, quickly processed the paperwork, and had me on my way. The car pick-up process is easy enough (short walk to an underground lot a few blocks away) and the car was practically new.

Thanks Ms. Rotberga for the outstanding service -- I had a car with yourselves back in March and thought I'd had already written a review. Ms. Rotberga went out of her way to help me and I had a great price and a great car because of it. Made my trip a lot more enjoyable. Thank you very much! will use your service again in other countries and cities!

Excellent choice if you want to rent a car and travel Latvia. My first time renting a car in Latvia so I was bit scared if I would get scammed or something else but nothing happend, the staff were very friendly to us and explained everything that we need to know

So I took a Toyota rav4, bcz all economic cars were reserved. I enjoy it so much, I had unlimited mileage so It was perfect for me bcz I did like 1000 or more miles,

Also driving a new car with so many sensors that helped me driving through Latvia countryside.

On our way back to deliver the car, we called for a live check in the morning and when we arrived in the airport parking area a very nice guy, friendly and with a big smile, asked us to make the online check of the car.

Thanks sixt_Latvia for this experience,

I cannot wait to drive again :)

Very lovely experience with car rental from Estonia to Latvia- timely delivery, top-notch car and service. Drop off point for Radisson BLU is DZIRNAVU street 87, underground parking lot. Then put the keys and car documents in orange SIXT box inside Radisson Blu Latvia hotel (Elizabetes 55). Thank You Sixt!

Best experience so far. Competent and friendly staff.


Always new cars and friendly staff


Reliable BICYCLE rental service has saved me several times, when needed to get quickly from point to point in city center. Easy to use smartphone app with plenty of pick-up and drop-off locations throughout Riga.

I wanted to write a review about the nice service at Sixt's office on Elizabeth Street.


Thanks to your employee Lelde Liepina I was very pleasantly surprised by the service on 28/08/2019. She was extremely professional, helpful and cordial. This is a good example of how I see Sixt as a company with other eyes after having this pleasant encounter with her. Now I feel that you are a particularly good company if you have people like her working for you.


Thanks for the great experience and I really hope you appreciate an employee like her because SHE IS GOLD. Thank you

Iespējams labākā autonomas kompānija. Cenas gan paaugstas


Service is good but return of the car is complicated!


The car garage was closed and we had to wait for 30 Minutes until somebody came and opened it for us!

Sixt at BLU Latvija had our paperwork and car ready and waiting for us, and the clerk spoke enough English to make the process easy for us. However, the car pickup point is in a structure several blocks from the Sixt office. We were very happy with the clean, new and comfortable car we got. I cannot address returning a car here, because we returned the car to RIX.

SIXT RIGA is super centrally located right next to SAS RADISSON BLU hotel, Brīvības boulevard, Centrs, 150 meters away from the Christ Nativity Cathedral
