The AFAR Guide to Latvia

While the Baltic state of Latvia lies between Europe and Russia, in many ways, it feels more European, enjoying a considerable coastline and a temperate climate. And, like Estonia, Latvia's capital city of Riga boasts an historical center that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The majority of the country's 2 million people reside in Riga, and the landscape of Latvia is one of the most forested in all of Europe, as Latvia has a long tradition of natural conservation.
