Arriving in Jūrmala

By train The first train service between Riga and Jūrmala started in 1877. Over a century later the electrical commuter train is still slow and takes 40 minutes from the central train station to Majori. Trains leave frequently from platforms 3 and 4.

By minibus Minibuses depart from the Central Minibus Station (opposite the Central Train Station) roughly every 15 minutes from 06:00 - 24:00.

Take the Riga - Sloka, Riga - Dubulti or Riga - Jaunķemeri minibus and ask the driver let you out at Majori. The ride takes 30 minutes and costs about €1.65.

By car The well-kept 15km long highway from Riga to Jūrmala is one of the best in the nation. Motorists no longer have have to stop and pay a toll when entering Jūrmala during the autumn and winter months. However, once summer arrives you'll have to drive up to the toll machines and pay a small fee. Place the receipt on your dashboard.
