"It is Latvia. Have you been there?" Fanija's Profile

I think best trips start on the day you become curious. There is a world outside your window, and suddenly you want to learn what it is like. Tourism descriptions are not enough for you, because you don't want to be just a reader.
And here the road starts to bring you the most incredible stories of all.

So why not Latvia?

Sandy beaches, vast forests and flowering meadows, remarkable monuments of history and cultural gems – you will find it all if you choose Latvia as your travel destination.

Latvia is a small and hospitable country open for visitors. You are welcome to visit its heart – Riga. It is rich in history, culture and diverse entertainments. Visitors can admire buildings of remarkable Gothic, Baroque, Classicism and, of course, Art Nouveau architecture, which UNESCO considers to be unequaled anywhere in the world.

For those who don't want to sleep at nights, Riga has a bustling nightlife offering endless opportunities to party. For this reason, Riga is called “The Second City that Never Sleeps” and “The Hottest City in the North”.

Outside of Riga, visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of Latvia, which is full of life and surprises – large natural forests, marshes with rare species, meadows, carefully protected national parks, vast network of free flowing rivers and thousands of lakes – and, of course, the Baltic Sea with white sand beaches, flowing dunes and stately pine forests stretching along protected coastline.

Visit a typical Latvian rural farmyard, where people live in harmony with nature's laws and rhythms. Today, an increasing number of Latvian farmers are opening their farms to tourists offering bed and breakfast services and a variety of leisure activities.

Latvians have a strong passion for music, therefore Latvia is also known as “The Land that Sings”. There is a wild range of possibilities for visitors to take part in traditional Latvian celebrations, cultural events and entertaining programs throughout the year.

Don't miss visiting Turaida Castle, Rundale Palace and Jurmala – the largest resort town in the Baltic States.

You are welcome!
