Latvia is divided into four regions: Kurzeme, Zemgale, Latgale and Vidzeme, named after tribes that once dominated the respective areas. Despite sometimes being referred to as the Switzerland of the Baltics (partly because of pretensions of being a regional financial center), Latvia is distinguished by rolling plains and modest hills; the highest hill, Gaizinkalns, is a mere 311 meters. Latvia has a 494-kilometer coastline and thick forests.

    Excellent introduction to Latvia - great overview of its natural and cultural heritage and regional differences. You can tell us about the legend of the Turaida Rose :-)

    An excellent introduction to Latvia, its regions and hidden secrets. Very nice, though the mountains are a little higher where you are now:-]
