Tucked between Estonia and Lithuania, this Baltic gem offers visitors an authentic experience of the region. A tour of the country will take you through the green Gauja Valley, show you the domed cathedrals of small towns and introduce you the lively capital, Riga.
Exploring Latvia, you’ll discover a land of divided languages and cultures. A visit to Riga demonstrates this beautifully and gives travellers a richer experience. The cosmopolitan capital is also good for anyone seeking energy during your journey. It embodies a fascinating mixture of proud Latvian tradition and 21st-century style. Points of interest include the Art Nouveau centre, which has UNESCO World Heritage site status, museums and concert halls, the medieval Old Town and wooden buildings.
Outside of the city, you’ll have the opportunity to marvel at Latvia’s spectacularly unspoiled countryside with its lakes, forests and sandy beaches, making this the ideal destination for nature-lovers and photography enthusiasts. In fact, anyone would take pleasure in the scenery on offer in this stunning land.
