Latvia

A davidMbyrne.com Destination Photography Gallery

Tucked between Estonia to the north and Lithuania to the south, Latvia is the meat of the Baltic sandwich. We’re not implying that the neighbouring nations are slices of white bread, but Latvia is the savoury middle, loaded with colourful fixings. Thick greens take the form of Gauja Valley pines; onion-domed cathedrals sprout up above local towns; cheesy Russian pop blares along coastal beaches; and spicy Riga adds an extra zing as the country’s cosmopolitan nexus and the unofficial capital of the entire Baltic.
