The best part of going to Latvia? You'll be able to say you went before any of your friends discovered this enigmatic little country in the Baltics. From busy, beautiful capital city Riga, with its mix of cobbled Old Town and Art Nouveau quarter, to country paradise Sigulda or the grand palace at Rundale, there's something for every taste in this tiny country of just two million. A holiday in the Baltics will surpass your expectations.
The best destinations in the Baltics
If you're keen to see all three of the Baltic capitals you'll likely reach Riga second, so you might have some preconceptions. How different can these cities be, so close together? In a word: very. Each of them has a very different energy. Riga is the most populous of the three and has more of a big city feel to it. Those who visit Riga are always pleasantly surprised.
Try a Baltic travel package
Good road connections from Riga to Tallinn and Vilnius make it easy to combine all three in a Baltic travel package. Riga's International airport is the largest of the three. Since a number of low-cost airlines operate from there we can even incorporate some time in Latvia with a larger itinerary that includes many of our other destinations in Central and Eastern Europe. Latvia joined the EU in 2004. The country is in the Schengen Area, meaning practically borderless travel. Since 2014 the country has been on the Euro. The Latvians are making it as easy as possible for you to visit. Now it's up to you. Adventure in the Baltics awaits!
