For the first time I visited, together with my husband, a Baltic country: Latvia. We spent a couple of days at the country’s capital Riga, accompanied by resident friends. Riga has an interesting old part of the town with it’s medieval architecture, many parks, it’s river and modern buildings. A nice mix encountered also on the gastronomical side. We couldn’t miss the city of Jurmala, situated on the Baltic Sea and characterized by it’s traditional architecture. A destination I recommend particularly during the summer.
