Russian language school in Riga


Learn Russian at Liden & Denz Riga

Our only centre outside Russia is wonderfully located on one of the inner city boulevards of Riga, right between the main railway station and the National Opera. To reach the historic centre of Riga, a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site, you just need to cross the small canal on the other side of the boulevard. The whole inner city can easily be discovered walking. There are plenty of bars, coffee-shops and restaurants within easy reach of our Russian language school.

For a map of the neighbourhood and directions how to find us, please refer to our “contact us” section. The Liden & Denz Intercultural Institute of Languages Riga is located on the second floor of a historical building, featuring ten spacious classrooms, all with natural light and equipped with state of the art technology. There is a nice lounge area with vending machines and a computer lab. WiFi is free of charge for all students. Adjacent to the classrooms, on the same floor, there is a small but very popular student apartment (shared flat). The inner courtyard provides another cosy place to hang out and is frequently used for barbecues.
