For a great day trip out of Riga, catch local bus number 1 to the Ethnographic Open Air Museum (the stop is called Brivdabas Muzejs). Here you can view authentic wooden houses, windmills and farmsteads from all over Latvia set in a beautiful pine forest on Lake Jugla.

Latvia holidays give you the opportunity to discover historic towns, ancient fortifications, endless forests, sparkling lakes and the deserted Baltic coast. Nothing beats jumping into a car and touring this gem of a country at your own pace.

Latvia definitively shook off decades of isolation as part of the Soviet Union by declaring independence in 1991 and becoming a member of the European Union in 2004. You will encounter a country and its people which embraces its new-found freedoms and exhibits a fun-loving side and  a passion for the outdoors.

Be enchanted by Riga with its collection of Baroque and Art Nouveau buildings and café culture. Away from the city uncover a time of romantic legends and heroic figures with medieval castles and opulent grand residences and take a brisk stroll along the dramatic windswept coastline with its vast sandy and secluded beaches.

Take in medieval Cesis with its wooden buildings, cobbled streets and impressive castle and admire Baroque Rundale Palace, conceived by the architect who designed the Hermitage. Stay in distinguished manor houses and pamper yourself at a spa retreat in the resort of Jurmala.

For a truly unique summer break, take a beach holiday in Latvia, where you will find pleasant, warm waters and miles of sparkling sandy beaches backed by scented pine forests. Our Latvia beach holidays take you to the stunning resort of Jurmala, also known as the ‘Riviera of the Baltics’.

With plenty of fabulous shops, bustling cafés and excellent restaurants serving delicious, freshly caught seafood, you won’t struggle for things to see and do after a day in the sun. In addition, the enchanting and culturally rich city of Riga is within easy distance for a magical day trip.
