Riga is the capital of Latvia and is the largest city in the Baltic. The city is located on both banks of the river Daugava, which seperates the city in to two sections; the Vecriga (Old Riga) and Pardaugava.
The port of Riga is an important part of the city's development and history, and was used for international trade between the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea as early as the 5th century. In the 12th century a small village, that is now Riga, was created on the river bank. The location provided a natural port and shelter for cargo and passenger shipping.
Stockholm, Sweden's capital, is made up of 14 small islands, each distinct in character and mood; from the upmarket Östermalm and the bohemian Södermalm to the historic Gamla Stan. Stockholm is often referred to as the `Venice of the North', with its pretty islands and 52 connecting bridges. Stockholm is also considered to be the capital of Scandinavia, and is a popular tourist destination offering visitors beautiful landscape, stylish boutiques, stunning art galleries and much more.
Stockholm offers its visitors an array of exciting things to see and do. Museums include the Skansen open-air museum of Swedish life and culture, with historic buildings, working farms, a zoo and an aquarium. There is a vast number of walking tours and excursions to enjoy in Stockholm, and many important buildings to visit. The Royal Djurgarden park is an island consisting of beautiful parkland and forest, and the Old Town of Stockholm offers the Drottningholm Palace, which is the home of the Swedish Royal Family; and the remains of the Viking settlement, Birka. History lovers can take a guided city tour, which is offered in many different languages.
There is also plenty for younger visitors to do in Stockholm, from the Junibacken park, the wonderful world of master story-teller Astrid Lindgren, to attractions such as the Museum of Music, the Toy Museum and Skansen's Aquarium.

18 Jun 2013Tired boat
We were first in the queue at check in. Our motorcycle was directed into a corner of the loading area with a large oil slick and broken wire pieces on the ground. I was worried about a puncture. We were then completely hemmed in by cars. We had to wait for 2 hours outside with no toilet facilities. Luckily the rain held off. A group of bikes came last and they were called on first to be tied down. We had to walk into the boat to show the loader we had a bike. Eventually he moved the cars to let us on. We had paid extra for a higher grade cabin but did not have the window we expected. The water did not drain from the sink. The staff at the information desk were quite shirty and wanted 55€ for an upgrade. All in all a shabby affair on Isabelle, the older of the two ferries that do the Riga - Stockholm route. Our Latvian friends recommend that you book on Romantika, the newer of the two boats, if you travel on this route. Overall recommended as the trip into Stockholm is fascinating - but not on this boat.

05 Oct 2012Comfortable way to cross the Baltic
I was impressed with the trip. The cabin was comfortable, a decent size and offered a good view out to sea. The bathroom was small as you would expect but everything worked well and the shower was surprisingly good. The trip was comfortable and I enjoyed the entertainment. Bars were good, especially when 2 for 1 was on! We ate in Riga so didn't sample the catering but it offered a good choice and would have been happy to eat there. Overall a good trip and I would recommend it.

04 Dec 2011Good experience
I had a good experience on the ferry. I went to the hot tub and sauna which was great and very relaxing, then I went for a drink at the bar on the top floor, the quality of the drink could have been better and the price was a bit excessive but considering the boat situation it was really good.
