Currency, euros?

Are euros accepted in Latvia? Or, do I need to pay for purchases in local currency only?

No, euros are not accepted in Latvia.

There might be some exceptions, but in general the currency is LVL (Latvian Lats) and this is the mostly used currency by paying in cash.

ATMs at airport. Took out 150 LVL for 5 night stay. About $300 for 150 LVL. Remember to double LVL price to approximate $$$.

If arriving by plane, exit airport and go to right for bus 22 into city. Look for covered area almost diagonally outside airport exit and to the right. Will pay for tix on bus and will be less than $2 pp. If going to old city, exit bus, walk to left, use underpass to get across busy street.

Yes, they are. No need to pay in local currency for purchases.
