Daytrips in Latvia By Car
Riga is a great place to begin a road trip if you wish to explore Latvia by car. This Baltic Sea port of Riga is Latvia's biggest city and home of its biggest airport Riga International Airport. Car rentals desks are located at the airport terminal and also at Riga city centre and ferry port, where a regular ferry service connects Riga to Stockholm and Helsinki. Riga is the largest city of the Baltic States and Latvia's cultural, political and economical centre.
Located on the banks of the Daugava River in the old town of Riga, the House of the Blackheads is the Riga's most iconic monument. Built in the 14th century, the landmark was almost destroyed during WWII, regaining its true glory only after the independence of Latvia, at the beginning of the 90's. The historical centre of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and also a very nice place for a walk, if one likes narrow streets and medieval buildings. A last site worth visiting in Riga is the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, housing numerous remnants of Latvia's struggle under Nazi and Communist rule.
Liepaja and Ventspils.
A short drive West of Riga, you'll find the coastal cities of Liepaja and Ventspils. Small and quaint, these two towns have a medieval heritage that other Baltic towns would envy. Another important landmark to visit is the sequence of sandy beaches on the Latvian coast - not particularly exotic, but a very nice place for walking or cycling.
Coming back and passing Riga, the renovated Turaida Castle awaits its visitors with its majestic towers and fortified defences. This 13th century citadel is only the first in a series of three Latvian castles that are definitely worth visiting. The other two are Krimulda and Sigulda, both located on the side of the road connecting Latvia's capital to Estonia
Raznas National Park
To continue our tour, we head south, to the Raznas National Park, a wonderful natural monument that includes endless forests, waterfalls and a particular fauna. Definitely worth a visit, especially because Latvia is the European country with the largest percentage of land covered by forests.
We end our tour of the country in Daugavpils, near the borders with Lithuania and Russia. With 100 thousand inhabitants, it ought to be visited, especially by outsiders that are familiar with the ex-Soviet countries, as Daugavpils is truly a combination between Minsk and Krakow, between Communist and Classic architecture, between modern and old. This kind of perfect 50% alignment is difficult to find anywhere else in the Soviet block. Enjoy your time in Latvia!
