Description:   Latvia is the middle of the three Baltic States with Estonia to its North and Lithuania to its south. Unlike its northern neighbour Estonia who has blossomed into a vibrant and thriving short-term tourism destination, Latvia is still quite a long way behind. It is a pleasant enough country to visit.
