Latvia is an exceptional country. Like a true lady it is multidimensional and mysterious, friendly and openhearted, luxurious and shy at the same time. And, despite its long history, it remains modern.
The heart of Latvia is its capital – beautiful Riga that fascinates and always astonishes with its diversity. The “pearl” of Latvia is the resort town of Jurmala, which invites you to enjoy the sun, feel the warmth of the golden sand and refresh in the waves of the Baltic Sea. Gourmets can discover “other” Latvia, by tasting it.
