Are you thinking about visiting Latvia?

While this small northern country isn’t on most people’s radar yet, it should be. This Baltic state offered lots of surprises when we visited, and we ended up loving our time here. Yes, the country might not be big in size, but we found so many things to do in Latvia that we had a hard time choosing.

Therefore, we highly recommend that you take enough time when you visit this beautiful country. And to make things easier, we have put together a list of what to do in Latvia. We hope you’ll find them useful for planning your trip.

Latvia

When visiting Latvia, one of the best things to do is basing yourself in Riga and exploring the country on day trips. From here, you have the choice between seeing many different parts of Latvia. Do you want to visit the seaside in Jurmala? Or do you prefer strolling through the medieval town of Cesis?

Or are you expecting outdoor adventures, while also seeing a few castles along the way? Then you should head to Sigulda.

Here, you can hike through the Gauja National Park, explore caves and castles or seek out adrenaline rushes on the bobsleigh track. And the best part is that it only takes an hour to get here from Riga.…

When we planned our trip to the Baltics, I spent a lot of research trying to find the best places to visit. For Lithuania, I already had a rough idea since I knew I wanted to see my great-great-grandmother’s hometown. And Vilnius, being the capital, seemed like an easy choice.

You’re probably in a similar situation, wondering where to go and how to spend your limited time. Fortunately, we’ve done all the research and travelled the country, so we can now share the highlights of Lithuania with you.

Travel Advice

It’s almost Easter. And that means that the Easter holidays are just around the corner. Yesterday, we were supposed to take a train to Brussels where we would stay for five days. We were looking forward to meeting up with friends, eating fries and taking day trips all over Belgium (in particular to Brugges, which everyone says is insanely beautiful).

Then, on Good Friday, we had a flight to Mallorca, where we would meet with my parents and my brother to spend a relaxing long weekend. Despite being Spanish, Daniel had never been to Mallorca. And while I had spent a weekend in Mallorca a while ago, there were so many places left to explore on this beautiful island! Plus, I love the idea of meeting up with my family somewhere random in Europe.…
