Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania - Latvia (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Latvia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania guidebook.

A tapestry of sea, lakes and woods, Latvia is best described as a vast unspoilt parkland with just one real city – its cosmopolitan capital, Rīga. You can always secure a chunk of pristine nature, be it for trekking, cycling, or lounging on a white-sand beach.

  • lose yourself in the maze of cobblestones, church spires and gingerbread trim that is Unesco-protected Old Rīga
  • maps
  • sneak away from the capital and indulge in aristocratic decadence at Rundāle Palace
  • transport
  • listen to the waves pound the awesomely remote Cape Kolka, which crowns the desolate Kurzeme coast
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Understand Latvia, Latvia Today, History, The People, The Arts: Cinema, Latvian Song & Dance, Art and Architecture, Food & Drink, Directory A-Z, Transport, Rīga & around, Jūrmala, Ķemeri National Park, Western Latvia (Kurzeme), Ventspils Road, Ventspils, Pāvilosta, Liepāja, Abava River Valley, Kuldīga, Cape Kolka (Kolkasrags), Southern Latvia (Zemgale), Bauska, Rundāle Palace, Dobele & around, Northeastern Latvia (Vidzeme), Vidzeme Coast, Gauja National Park, Southeastern Latvia (Latgale), Daugava River Valley, Daugavpils & around, and Rēzekne & around.
