12 Of The Most Beautiful Places To Visit In
Latvia is still very much an off-the-beaten-path place to go. I’m a local nature tour guide and here’s my top choice for the best and most beautiful places to visit in Latvia…
Riga has been so far the most popular destination in Latvia. It has a rich history of more than 800 years and an amazing cultural legacy.
Sigulda is a small town some 50 kilometers from Riga in the central region of Latvia called Vidzeme. It’s a popular tourist attraction not because of the town itself but because of the stunning views of Gauja National Park it offers.
Cēsis is a small but charming town less than 100 kilometers from Riga. It is almost as old as Riga. Its medieval castle and rich history are what draw people here but not only that.
Jūrmala is the closest and most convenient place to go from Riga if you are looking to spend some time on a beach and enjoy all the benefits of civilization at the same time.
Kemeri National Park
Ķemeri National Park is another national park that is close to Riga. The famous Ķemeri Great Bog and its boardwalk attract many visitors.
Liepāja is the third biggest city in Latvia worth special attention. It is on the far south-west coast of Latvia, and it takes some three hours to get there from Riga by car (alternatively you can take an inland flight or train).
Aglona is a local and even regional place of pilgrimage. Two visits of different popes alone say a lot about the importance of this place for Catholics. Basilica of the Assumption is the main highlight there.
