About the Baltic Sea Region
Picturesque towns, quiet fishing villages and charming secluded beaches give the long coast of Latvia a special charm. In particular, the northern part is one of the most beautiful regions of the country. Sand dunes and pine forests dominate the narrow coastal strips and invite you to take long walks. At the north-westernmost point of Cape Kolka, the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Riga meet together, a popular spot among Latvian tourists. The two ports of Ventspils and Liepaja are among the largest and most dynamic cities in Latvia - stop by one of the many cafes or restaurants and enjoy the afternoon sun.

Far away from the coast, the rural character predominates - especially the small town Kuldīga. It enchants its visitors with the romantic streets and the beautiful location on the Venta. The river gained fame through the widest natural waterfall and the oldest brick bridge in Europe, rich in legends and historical events. A multitude of small fishing villages line the coast - sleepy little places that couldn't be more romantic. Friendly inhabitants love to talk about their life on the Baltic Sea, with which they are deeply rooted.
