Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania - Latvia (Chapter)
This is the Latvia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania guidebook.
Tucked between Estonia and Lithuania, Latvia is the meat of the Baltic sandwich: the country’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.

- Lose yourself in the maze of cobblestones, church spires and gingerbread trim that is the Unesco-protected Old Rīga
- Listen to the waves pound the awesomely remote Cape Kolka, which crowns the desolate Kurzeme coast
