An extraordinarily beautiful country located on the Baltic Sea, Latvia offers an enticing mix of natural wonders, cultural charms and heartfelt hospitality. The idyllic landscape is a mosaic of pine forests, white sand beaches and lush green fields, whilst its cities offer culinary delights, unique traditions and a cosmopolitan flair.  

Riga is not only the jewel in the crown of Latvia, but also of the Baltics. Following the artistic rebellion that swept through Europe at the beginning of the 20th century, Riga transformed into an architectural icon, with the Art Nouveau style influencing one third of the city centre buildings. The House of Blackheads is one of the main symbols of the capital, and a wander around the cobblestone streets of the Old Town will reveal plenty of hidden gems.    

Textiles and clothing have culturally significant roots and occupy a focal spot in the Latvian economy. Archaeological findings and costumes restored from 1000-year-old fragments have allowed Latvians to recreate the traditional outfits they wear today, and these can be viewed at the National Costume Centre – a magnificent storehouse preserving clothes for future generations.
