Eastern Europe - Latvia (Chapter)
This is the Latvia chapter from Lonely Planet's Eastern Europe guidebook.
Latvia’s under-the-radar profile makes it the perfect pit stop for those seeking something a bit more authentic than the overrun tourist hubs further afield. Spicy Riga adds an extra zing as the country’s cosmopolitan nexus and unofficial capital of the entire Baltic.
- click your camera at the menagerie of gargoyles, beasts, goddesses and twisting vines that inhabits the surplus of Riga’s art nouveau architecture
- lose yourself in the maze of cobblestones, church spires and gingerbread trim that is Old Riga
- listen to the waves pound the awesomely remote Cape Kolka, which crowns the desolate Kurzeme coast
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Understand Latvia, History, People, Arts, Food & Drink, Directory A–Z, Transport, Riga & around, Jurmala, Western Latvia, Cape Kolka (Kolkasrags), Kuldiga, Ventspils, Liepaja, Eastern Latvia, Sigulda
