Europe on a Shoestring - Latvia (Chapter)
This is the Latvia chapter from Lonely Planet's Europe on a Shoestring guidebook.
Thick greens take the form of Gauja Valley pines. Onion-domed cathedrals sprout above local towns. Cheesy Russian pop blares along coastal beaches. And spicy Riga adds an extra zing as the country’s cosmopolitan nexus and unofficial capital of the Baltic.
- lose yourself in the maze of cobblestones, church spires and gingerbread trim that is Old Riga
- wander past gritty Soviet tenements and gilded cathedrals in the crumbling Karosta district of portly Liepaja
- swing through Sigulda on a bungee cord
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Understand Latvia, History, People, Arts, Directory A–Z and Transport, Riga & around, Jurmala, Cape Kolka (Kolkasrags), Liepaja and Sigulda.
