River cruise

River cruise by Vecrīga (‘Old Riga’). We offer you a charming evening river cruise along Daugava.

What’s included

The ticket to the river cruise includes access to the boat, DJ, and two drinks (beer, wine, or juice).


The boat will wait you at the entrance of the hotel, and we will return to the same place. You can find the exact location by going to the huge Latvian flag in front of the hotel.

River cruise is not included in the conference ticket. You can buy it here for yourself and your partner.

The price is €30.00.

If you are staying after the conference, join us at the River Cruise! At the end of the third day of the conference, we prepared an additional element in the entertainment program, the River Cruise. Our travel boat, Vecrīga (meaning "Old Riga" in Latvian), it will wait us right at the exit from the hotel, next to the big Latvian flag. We'll have three hours along the Daugava river. On the board: communication, music, and more. None of the conference tickets includes a trip by default. You can buy it separately in our shop: https://perlcon.eu/extras/river-cruise. The ticket includes two drinks (beer, sodas, wine). We visited the Vecrīga boat right after they passed the regular technical check, and we can say that it looks beautiful and ready! #lv #riga #conferene #perlcon #yapc #yapceu #perlcon19 #rivercruise #daugava #vecriga #itconference #it #programming #meeting #convention #congress #coding #programmer #programmers #perl #perl5 #perl6
