Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Yes, although this is slowly improving with EU funding. - Mar 2022

Would be very challenging. There is one NGO working on accessibility issues, but progress has been slow. Even municipal buildings are rarely truly accessible. - Jul 2017

While Riga is not as accessible as a city of its size would be in the U.S., growth is coming in this area. Ramps and elevators - Sep 2016

I can't say it would be great, but it's a European city - it's pretty good as potential foreign postings go. - Jul 2010

Public transportation will be very challenging and generally access to any stores or buildings will be difficult since they were not built for wheelchairs/strollers. - Aug 2008
