Amber and Art Nouveau

Latvia is a brilliant and largely undiscovered destination for most travelers. Golden amber washes up on the beaches, and green forests cover almost half of the land. Black Balsam, the region’s signature 90-proof herbal liqueur, is said to have cured Catherine the Great. The red roofs of UNESCO-listed Old Riga offset the rumors of blazing modern nightlife downtown. Even the sun stays up late in Riga.

Traveler Reviews

  • "This was a more interesting area than I had expected. It hadn’t really been high on my list of places to visit, but now I want to see more of Eastern Europe. I especially enjoyed the art nouveau district in Riga."
