Latvia has been a crossroads of Europe for centuries, giving it fascinating history and an exciting future. Half of the country is a beautiful natural landscape of forests, lakes and deep river valleys while the other half is made up of vibrant cities, blending World Heritage sites with modern designs. Along the coast, you’ll find famous spa towns and one of the longest sandy beaches in Europe, bordered by shallow seas containing relatively little salt. 

    The capital city of Riga is a big highlight of any trip to Latvia. It has a beautiful old town, a vibrant nightlife and some great festivals. Highlights include Riga Castle and St. Peter’s Church, with its stunning views of the old town from the top of its tallest spire. Other places outside of Riga worth checking out include Sigulda, Liepāja and Cesis, which each offer the country’s fantastic combination of history, nature and exciting activities.
