Europe - Latvia (PDF Chapter)
This is the Latvia chapter from Lonely Planet’s Europe 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. The country might be small, but the amount of personal space it provides is enormous.
- click your camera at the nightmarish menagerie of devilish gargoyles, mythical beasts, praying goddesses and twisting vines that inhabits rīga’s surplus of art nouveau archi-tecture
- launch lighting raids into Gauja National Park from Cēsis Castle fortress
- join swarms of fish trying to jump over Ventas Rumba, the widest (and possibly the short-est) waterfall in Europe
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Rīga & Around, Jūrmala, Sigulda, Cēsis, Western Lat-via, Kuldīga, Ventspils, Survival Guide.
