Latvia is a small country located in the Baltic region of Northern Europe, and is bordered by Estonia to the north, Lithuania to the south, Belarus to the southeast, and Russia to the east. A population of just over two million people and its capital city is Riga. A long history that dates back thousands of years. It was once part of an ancient kingdom known as Livonia which was formed in 1207 AD when German crusaders conquered much of what is now modern-day Latvia and Estonia. From 1561 until 1721 it was part of Sweden, then from 1721 until 1918 it was part of Russia before finally gaining independence after World War I in 1918. Latvia's economy relies heavily on agriculture, forestry, fishing and tourism as well as manufacturing industries such as textiles and electronics. The country also has an important port on the Baltic Sea which serves as one of its main sources for trade with other countries around Europe and beyond. The official language spoken in Latvia is Latvian but many people also speak Russian due to its close proximity with Russia over many centuries. The culture in Latvia reflects both Latvian traditions as well as influences from other nearby countries such as Germany and Sweden due to their past occupations there throughout history. Latvia has some beautiful landscapes ranging from coastal beaches along the Baltic Sea all the way up into dense forests full of wildlife like elk, deer, bears and wolves further inland towards Belarus or Russia’s borders with Latvia. There are also several national parks where visitors can explore nature trails or take boat rides along rivers or lakes while admiring stunning views across this picturesque landscape that makes up much of this small nation’s geography today. In conclusion, A fascinating country full of rich history combined with natural beauty that make it an ideal destination for those looking for something unique yet still close enough to other European nations like Germany or Sweden that have had influence here throughout time.
