Latvia is a country in Northern Europe and belongs to the Baltic States.


The capital Riga impressed with its medieval downtown.


The city of Sigulda is the starting point to hike to several castles.


One of my favorite dishes was stuffed pancakes.


  • I traveled Latvia on a backpacking trip through Northern-Eastern Europe with Finland and the Baltic States. I took the bus from Tallinn (Estonia) to Riga. I explored Riga and made a day trip to Sigulda. Then I went by bus to Vilnius (Lithuania).
