The Baltic States are the most beautiful and exciting travel destinations in Europe, made up of 3 countries: Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Latvia is part of the Baltic States and is snuggly positioned between Lithuania and Estonia. The population of Latvia is 2.5 million and has a territory of about 25,000 square miles, which makes it the largest member of the Baltic States.
After regaining its independence in 1991, Latvia has continued to grow its political and economic status and without losing sight of its cultural & historical roots. Today, it is fast becoming one of the most visited city breaks destinations in Europe. Many holiday makers come here as part of Classical Baltic breaks tours and many jet setters come to the capital ‘Riga’ for luxury break holidays, short city escapes and adventure holidays.
It is a wonderful country, full of wildlife, parks, breath taking landscapes, museums and many medieval towns. Latvia holidays are simply stunning, like nowhere else in the world. Not only are the natural sights beautiful, but so are the Latvian people, who have a positive zest for life and inner joy. This country has so much to offer and experience that it presents endless possibilities for city break tours and Baltic holidays.
Riga is certainly a gem of the city and is regarded as one of the nicest cities in Europe. The Riga Christmas markets are gorgeous and the Riga Opera house is first class. For a short break Riga is a discerning choice offering some stunning boutique hotels, fine dining and rich sightseeing opportunities.
