Latvia  Latvia

Latvia is situated on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea, between Estonia in the north and Lituania in the south. Together with these two countries, it comprises the Baltic group of nations.

Up to our days, the capital Riga evidences the legacy of many centuries and of the cultures of diverse peoples. After the dissolution of the former Soviet Union, since 1991 Latvia is once again an independent country.

The Latvians belong to the ancient "balt" tribes (from "balt" - white) which settled on the shores of the Baltic Sea 4000 years ago. They have three main qualities - joy of work, a good appetite, and love of singing.
