I'm starting the story about the eastern part of Latvia - Latgale. if you don't remember I reminding you that there are 4 regions in Latvia: Kurzeme (west), Vidzeme (north), Zemgale (center, south), Latgale (east). In Latgale living very friendly and hospitable people. Historicaly Latgale was a little bit different from other Latvia's regions tha? why there are many stereotips about this place. Probabply Latgale is the poorest region in Latvia, but there are the most beautiful nature and kindes people.
