Latvia originally part of the Soviet Union is situated in Northern Europe. Latvia has about half of its population living in Riga and the rest spread out across the country which takes just 8 hours to drive across from West to East. Latvia has its fair share of forests, meadows, small hills and vast coastlines. It can also boast 12,310 rivers and 3,000 lakes so opportunities for boating and walking and just enjoying the outdoors are immense. There are also numerous small medieval towns, country castles, museums and heritage parks to be visited.
