In Rīga, the capital city of Latvia, there are several tourist information centres (TICs). In the very heart of Old Rīga, in Melngalvju House on the Rātslaukums [the Historic City Hall Square], there is the Rīga Tourism Information Centre (tel.: 67037906). There is information available about tourism and leisure opportunities in Rīga and Latvia, events, sites and places to stay and there are maps, guidebooks, brochures, Rīga history and architecture books, souvenirs, postcards, DVDs and films about Rīga and Latvia for sale.

Such centres also operate in other places in Latvia. For example in Jūrmala, a popular beach town where the tourism information centre is located at 5 Lienes Street. In Sigulda, the Gauja National Park (rich in natural treasures and nature objects) the tourist information centre is located at 3 Raiņa Street. In Ventspils – 6 Dārzu Street. In Cēsis – 9 Pils Square. In Daugavpils – the home of the world famous artist Mark Rothko – 22a Rīgas Street.    

Tourist information centres are present not only in large cities, but also in smaller towns and locations, for example in the furthest north-west point in Latvia – Kolka – known for beautiful seaside nature and a lighthouse; a tourism centre is in “Zītari” (tel.: +371 63200140). Useful information for the traveller is provided by the Country Tourism Association “Lauku ceļotājs” which has an office at 40 Kalnciema Street, Rīga (tel.: +371 67617600).

Information about hotels and restaurants is available on the web page of the Association of Hotels and Restaurants of Latvia. In turn, information about tourism agents in Latvia is available from the Association of Latvian Travel Agents.
