Money exchange - Old Town

Can I just clarify that its bettert to take sterling rather than use a cash machine/ATM?

We are staying at Kramu Street near the Cathedral in the old town. Can you give me the name of a reputable money exchange place where we can change up sterling?

Many thanks.

You need to ask your bank or an English visitor - I always

use the ATM. Some info here:

In Riga I change money at the "Marika" exchange offices as they normally offer good rates. Please see the attached link for more info and maps: …valutas.info/banks-exchange-points/…

Check with your bank regarding using ATM.

There will be plenty of currency exchanges in Old Town. Marika is good, or Tavex. You can actually use any of the currency exchange booths, but just compare the rates. Some exchanges "for the tourists" have the rate which is 10-15% worse than others.
