Experience/Enjoy Welcome to Latvia!


Latvia is a beautiful country, with white sandy beaches, green forests, blue lakes and rivers, and vast fields of grain. Here you can experience the magic of all four seasons, enjoy healthy food and a rich culture and traditions. We can live in a country free from the ravages of natural disasters and earthquakes. Although our “diamond” is amber – millions of years of pine resin tears – our greatest treasure is our people: talented and hard-working, initially reserved in a Nordic way, but warm and welcoming as they get to know each other. We all live together in our Latvia with respect for its rich history and appreciation of its independence, honouring its traditions and language, which is one of the oldest in the world: this is how we pay tribute to the Latvian state and its people.
