Travel guide Latvia
Holiday in Latvia
530 kilometres of coastline, endless forests, unspoilt nature, culture and hospitality: Latvia’s visitors can look forward to all this. Riga, the capital, is considered a European metropolis, known for its cosmopolitanism, its old town and its Art Nouveau architecture.
TOP excursion destinations in Latvia
Latvia’s capital Riga fascinates with its art nouveau buildings. About 800 magnificent buildings with richly decorated facades, oriels and ornaments can still be admired today. During a stroll you can also explore the medieval old town, the town hall square and the lively Livu square.
The historic seaside resort of Jurmala can proudly call itself the only Latvian spa town. With 26 kilometres of sandy beaches, healing springs and beautiful wooden villas, it’s a paradise to leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind.
The small town of Kuldiga certainly has something to offer its guests. In addition to a medieval old town, it holds two European records: the widest waterfall and the longest navigable brick bridge.
The baroque Rundale Castle is considered the “Versailles of the Baltic”. Not for nothing, it enchants its visitors with the Golden Hall, the Grand Gallery, the French Garden and the extensive park.
The medieval castle ruins of Wenden invite you on a journey into the past. Equipped with a lantern, you can explore hidden places in the dark, climb the tower and admire a 16th century star vault.
The Kemeri National Park protects a large moor. Within the framework of a hike, the high moor and its inhabitants can be discovered on wooden footpaths.
The Gauja National Park is the largest national park in Latvia, covering 90,000 hectares. The forces of nature once created cliffs, grottos and caves here. Rivers, forests and wet meadows provide a protected habitat for rare animal and plant species. Turaida Castle and Krimulda Castle can also be visited here.
