    Users Assigned: Kazmi  
    One of the most recent additions to the European Union is Latvia. Much like Bulgaria, and several of the other newest EU members, the country is an undiscovered jewel that is just waiting to be polished. Long hidden behind the veil of Communism, and overshadowed by the presence of the Soviet Union, Latvia is a developing country that offers a unique look into a still-pristine world that has been untouched by Western modernization, but which is also quickly developing into one of Europe’s star countries.

    Located on the coast of the Baltic Sea and bordered by Estonia, Lithuania, Russia, and Belarus, Latvia is one of the three Baltic States. The country boasts 500 kilometers of untouched white beaches, and thousands of square kilometers of untouched nature parks and trails. The country is filled with medieval relics, from the castles at Cesis to the capital of Riga, which has been deemed a World Heritage Site. The country has long been considered one of the most important ports in this region of the world, dating back to ancient times, with Riga itself being founded in 1201 by the Germans.

    Between the medieval cities throughout the country to the mountains and forests, rivers and lakes, and otherwise, the country is a teeming thoroughfare of medieval history. Still relatively undiscovered by the masses, Latvia is nevertheless a must-see destination for any traveler, newbie or veteran. Between the national parks, the cities, the various summer festivals, and the budding economy that is beginning to recover after years behind the Communist veil, Latvia is simply too amazing to be passed up.

    Accommodations and transportation are fairly modern. English is understood by most of the younger generation, while Russian will be understood by the older. The country is best visited between June and September for summer activities, and winter months for winter activities. Latvian cuisine is rated among the best in Europe, and when combined with everything else this country has to offer, makes for a destination that will you want to visit over and over and over.

    • Riga
      Riga is currently one of the most exciting places in the Baltic, not only as a tourist destination, but because of its old town, its historical importance, and the current renaissance as many of the old buildings are being transformed with restoration projects. As the capital of Latvia the city has long been an important center for the region, and it is estimated that it has the largest collection of German Art Nouveau architecture in the world. The historical center itself is a World Heritage Site, and beyond St. Petersburg and Stockholm is the third-largest city in the Baltics. Between the architecture, the nightlife, and the current boom in popularity as a destination for travelers, Riga is the hottest of the hot.

      Initially founded in 1201 as a base for the Northern Crusades, Riga was a major hub for the Eastern Baltic regions during the days of the Hanseatic League, a fact which kept the city’s heart beating after the fall of the Hansa when it moved eventually into Russian hands until it emerged after the end of the Cold War as the head of state for the independent state of Latvia. Sitting along the Daugava River, the city has long boasted a distinctly German population, although these days it is mostly Latvians. Still, remnants of the past can be seen in the architecture and language. Visitors spend most of their time in Old Town, largely because of the beauty of the architecture.

      There are literally dozens of churches and museums and various other buildings showcasing the unique style of architecture, but there are also things like the Mezaparks just outside the outskirts of the town, heavily-forested and interspersed with residential mansions that have been refurbished to their pre-war glory. Beyond that there is the Latvian coast, showcasing the Baltic coastline in all her splendor. With such a combination of sights and sounds is easy to see how Riga has transformed into a hotspot of the 21st century for travelers.
