Private Journey to LATVIA

Private Journey to Latvia – If you’ve an appetite for Europe’s lesser-known lights, a taste of Latvian life should stimulate the senses. Tucked between Estonia to the north and Lithuania to the south, Latvia is the meat of the Baltic sandwich, the savoury middle, loaded with colourful fillings. Thick greens take the form of Gauja Valley pine forests peppered with Castle ruins. Onion-domed orthodox cathedrals cross the land from salty Liepaja to gritty Daugavpils. Cheesy Russian pop blares along the beach in Jurmala. And spicy Riga adds an extra zing as the country’s cosmopolitan nexus, and unofficial capital of the entire Baltic region. Finish with a serve of Riga’s rich eye candy: Europe’s largest and loveliest collection of art nouveau, and cobbled lanes hidden behind gingerbread trim.
