Latvia Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 48%, Latvia is another one of Eastern Europe's little gems that has been hidden away from the world for far too long. However, this is now starting to change and, before long, it will, no doubt, be a regular on the ever expanding "backpacker trail" around Europe. As with many of the countries in this region, Latvia offers quite an amazing range of options for such a small place. At the top of the list has to be the quintessential medieval town of Riga. Its old town is quaint and charming and is a place you can easily spend days simply strolling around, enjoying the sights, visiting the local cafés or visiting an impressive range of local museums and shops. But when you finally do decide to explore a little wider, a range of outdoor attractions await, such as Gauja National Park, where you can hike through pristine forests that are very lightly trafficked compared to Europe's much more well-known locales. To top your visit off, you should take a ride on the Sigulda Luge Track, where you can pretend that you're an Olympian going for gold. It's the perfect way to round out any vacation.
