|Location overview||Latvia is a tapestry of sea, lakes and woods, with vast unspoilt parklands. Having been invaded by almost every regional power, Latvia has more cultural layers and a less homogenous population than its neighbours. Latvians consider themselves the most artistic of the Baltic lot, and this is shown through the myriad of festivals.
Riga, the capital of Latvia, is the gateway to the whole of the Baltics. Included on the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage list, its location is central to the country, on the South Coast of the Gulf of Riga, and is at the mouth of Latvia’s largest river, the Daugava.
Riga is also known as the pearl of architecture – a city in which one can in one place the churches that were built at the city’s very origin, the medieval buildings of the Old Town, plus unique Art Nouveau examples, as well as wooden architecture which has survived for centuries.
