Sandwiched between Estonia and Lithuania, Latvia is one of the oldest living civilizations in existence.
Founded by a German, occupied, variously by Poland, Imperial Russia, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, with a brief 22 year respite of independence between the two great wars, this is a land that has fought hard to retain it's character and language and, against all the odds has succeeded. Part of Old Europe, now an enthusiastic member of 'New Europe' (Latvia embraced the Euro in January 2014) Latvia's capital, home to over a third of the country's population has great hotels, incredible architecture, green spaces in abundance, young, friendly, service oriented hospitality staff, and an emerging foodie scene.
Vast stretches of forest with gorgeous lakes and rivers running through it make Latvia a haven for nature lovers, bird watchers, and outdoor enthusiasts of every description.
