Have you ever been to LATVIA?
Latvia (Latvian: Latvija) is a small country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe. It is one of the 3 Baltic states (Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia) and still an insider tip as a travel destination. But there is much to explore: Latvian cuisine, beautiful national parks and historical castels, churches and old towns. Latvia and its exciting culture between east and west is worth a trip – not only for a few days. There is so much to see, to experience and to taste! Latvia amazes with nordic beauty, medieval towns and a beautiful nature.
For most travellers Riga, the capital of Latvia, a modern city with its historical old town is the starting point to discover Latvia. But other cities like Sigulda, Cesis or Jurmala are also beautiful holiday destinations. Visit the interesting port city of Liepaja with its old warehouse district, the fortress and the numerous churches – and its beautiful beach sections inbetween the sea and the lake. In Riga you will find hotels of all categories, at the coast and out in the countryside you will find smaller guesthouses.
LATVIAS untouched nature
Latvia is the ideal destination for nature lovers! Large parts of Latvia are covered by forests and wetlands. There are four national parks and many nature parks and nature reserves, the most famous is Gauja, where you can go canoeing and kayaking or visit a moated castle.
LATVIAS Baltic Sea beaches
Hundreds of kilometers of undeveloped sea coast, empty beaches with white, soft sand, pine trees and sand dunes – breathtaking natural beauty of the Baltic Sea. Just 30 minutes from Riga, Jurmala offers everything from beach sports to opera concerts. Or do you prefer tiny fishing villages and no other people for many miles? At the Livonian Coast you will find what you desire…
