Description:   Latvia is the middle of the three Baltic States with Estonia to its North and Lithuania to its south. Unlike its northern neighbour Estonia who has blossomed into a vibrant and thriving short-term tourism destination, Latvia is still quite a long way behind. It is a pleasant enough country to visit.
Useful Links: The official website for the Latvian Tourism Board. Available in several other languages. Nice site. Good info and easy to navigate. This is the official web site for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
