Latvia is a mainly flat Baltic country (the highest point on the land being 311m above sea level) which is rich in photogenic castles, tranquil river valleys, and 500km of coastline on the Baltic sea. Latvia is also known for its music festivals (music plays an import part in everyday life here).
The country's fertile plains are largely forested with pine trees, with approximately 45% of the country being covered by nateral forest.
Riga is said by some to contain the finest concentration of Art Nouveau or Jugend buildings in Europe.
Latvia is a member of the European Union and the currency is the Euro, having replaced the Latvian Lat at the beginning of 2014.
Latvia is also a Schengen country.
