Sandwiched between Estonia and Lithuania, Latvia is one of the oldest living civilizations in existence. History-minded travelers can delve into the multifaceted background of the nation, which has been variously occupied by Poland, Imperial Russia, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia. Today, an enthusiastic member of “New Europe,” the country is home to stylish hotels, incredible architecture, green spaces and an emerging culinary scene. Take a walking tour in Riga to visit the 13th-century St. Peter’s Church and the famous House of Cats. See the former headquarters of the Great Guild, now the home of the Riga Philharmonic, and the Three Brothers, one of the oldest stone buildings in Latvia. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore swaths of forest and gorgeous lakes and rivers, while genealogy buffs can research – along with our expert – their familial roots and the meaning of their ancestors’ names. Combining a storied past with postcard-perfect natural settings, Latvia is a gem.
