Old town elegance and nature’s bounty

With its seductive fusion of architectural grandeur, verdant woodland and Blue Flag beaches, Latvia is a refreshing place to spend some time and unwind. Capital city Riga shows off its cobble-stoned old town and raft of art nouveau architecture to impressive effect, and there are still glimpses of the Soviet era amidst the friendly cafés, beer gardens and pleasant city squares. Outside of its towns and cities, you’ll discover golden beaches in lively spa resorts, crumbling castles, shady forests to get lost in, and Rundale’s magnificent baroque palace.
