» » » » Latvia ( Latvija ). A voyage to Latvia, East Europe - Rīga, Sigulda, Jūrmala, Gauja National Park...

From crumbling castles in Sigulda, to Jūrmala and its alluring resorts on the edge of the ice-blue Baltic Sea, it’s very easy to just get away. Summer is an especially magical time - twilight comes near midnight and by 4am it’s light again.
After long, dark winters, Latvians seem determined to soak up as much light as possible and the whole country exudes a frenetic, turbocharged energy. Beer gardens pop up in even the smallest villages and revellers slug pints well into the night. Its natural offerings are also a drawcard, like Gauja National Park in Eastern Latvia, a pine-scented paradise.
It’s hard to believe this tiny, vivacious nation shed its Russian stranglehold less than two decades ago because, despite years of intense suffering under Soviet and Nazi occupations, Latvia has a serenity and charm rarely found elsewhere in Europe.
This is Latvia’s moment. Visit before everyone else does.
