Your only costs will be train tickets both ways. (Follow our facebook page - event is already out!)
  • ESN Riga goes to Aristotelis (2.09.) - it′s University of Latvia’s new student celebration – the event that starts the path of every LU student! So get ready to spend your first Sunday in the most wonderful atmosphere. It will start at 19:00 at Dome Square with official part and will end with the march until the main building of University of Latvia where the party until dawn with other students from University of Latvia will begin.
