Looking for somewhere that offers rich culture and definitely won’t break the bank?

Then Latvia may be the country for you.

Often overlooked for many other European destinations, this may be one of the upcoming hidden gems that we can definitely see becoming a popular tourist destination in the years to come.

We visited the capital city of Riga and absolutely loved every minute of our trip.

With so many things to do in Riga, and the fact that you can pretty much walk to all parts of the city that are worth visiting it’s hard not to love it.

Also the architecture is…..WOW!

Art Nouveau

Although we only visited Riga, we would love to return to see more of what there is on offer in both the other cities and the more rural areas.

Latvia is a country that has certainly grabbed our attention to see more of it.

Are you planning to visit Riga and on the lookout for a hotel?

Why not read our Park Inn by Radisson Residence review? It’s the hotel we stayed in and we can’t recommend it enough for it’s location and price point.
