Latvia, the pearl of the Baltic States, is a European Union member and located in North-Eastern part of Europe – on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Latvia has for decenniums been at the cross-roads between East and West, North and South. This has made Latvia into a multi-cultured nation where the traditions of all these countries have merged, creating a unique environment, not to be found anywhere else in the world.
A remarkable natural and civilised history unfolds going from western shorelines to the eastern lakes and forests. You find many well-preserved sites of historical importance; see the daily life of villages based on tradition, and the natural beauty of the country’s continuously changing landscape.
Festivals and events, both modern and ancient, fill social calendars throughout the year in all regions. Especially important to Latvians is the Midsummer Festival which takes place in June, celebrated with lot of parties, and respect for traditions.
Whether relaxing in spa towns, visiting castles, hiking through forests, listening to concerts, or even driving through on the way to Finland, Latvia seems to embrace the visitor like an old friend. It is no surprise that one of the most extraordinary men of literature, Baron von Munchausen, found inspiration in Latvia, a country that brings some dreams to life.
