Welcome to Latvia

For travellers, the best thing about Latvia is that it is so compact. Its 500 km of sandy beaches are easily reached from historical towns, where medieval hanseatic foundations support baroque and art nouveau buildings, that become venues for cultural festivals during the summer. Families of storks happily give their seal of approval to the unspoilt nature, fresh air and clean water around them. In addition to Riga, its spectacular gateway, there are 6 other UNESCO world heritage listed sites. A trading hub for over 800 years, it is well versed in welcome. With such a variety, Latvia is best enjoyed slowly. 

  • Exhibition "500 years of the Book 1514-2014" and the cycle of lectures

  • Since olden times Riga has been a city with rich cultural life, so no wonder, it has earned the honour to become the European capital of culture.
