Latvia possesses the largest and most cosmopolitan capital of the Baltic states, and visitors to Riga will find their interests well catered for in this guide - from museums, art nouveau buildings and opera to casinos, bars and jazz clubs. For visitors touring the peaceful Latvian countryside, a host of options is covered: Jurmala's sandy beaches, Gauja National Park and quaint provincial villages all merit a visit and are easily discovered with the Bradt guide. This new edition provides more coverage of activity holidays, the coastal town of Liepaja - now readily explorable with summer flights from Riga - and new possibilities for observing wildlife, including the developing nature area at Lake Pape.
