Latvia - General Information

Latvia is a country on the Baltic Sea between Lithuania and Estonia. It is known for its diverse cultures and modern cities. Latvia has a variety of different landscapes with everything from wide beaches to dense sprawling forests. Latvia's Capital is Riga, with wooden and art nouveau architecture. It is home to many churches and museums, as well as a Central market and a medieval Old Town.

There are many things to see and do in Latvia. There is the Riga Zoo, St. Peter's Church, the Museum of the Occupation, The Latvian Ethnographic Open Air Museum, as well as Gauja National Park. Latvia is a very environmentally friendly country and you will see many things showcasing this while visiting.

Latvian cuisine reflects its location and influences from neighboring countries. Fish is a common main dish as well as meats and specifically pork. A Latvian meal is seldom considered complete without pork being served. Latvian foods are usually fried or boiled and then mashed and will include many locally grown crops such as grain, wheat, barley, potatoes and beets. For something sweet, ice cream, cakes and chocolates are some Latvia favorites. You will find things such as pastries filled with curd vanilla cream and sprinkles of chocolate. And if you happen to be visiting on your birthday, the traditional cake is a Golden coffee cake in the shape of a pretzel… A great way to celebrate!

Latvia has warm summers and cold snowy winters, but four very pronounced seasons. Even with the four seasons the weather is generally cool and cloudy most of the year. The best time to visit for sightseeing would be June through August, unless of course you want to go there for the winter season.
