Summer in Latvia is short therefore no day should be wasted. Every sunny weekend from June to August, is of golden value – swimming, sunbathing, camping or gardening. Most of these activities can be combined with a cultural event.

Hello, dear readers! I'm Mary, a Chinese architect and artist. I have been working as an architect in China for 20 years, but then we decided to move away from China. And then I found Riga – my happiness!

Mes premiers contacts avec les Lettons et mon premier séjour à Riga, au milieu des années 1990, ont eu lieu au cours d’un échange entre un théâtre universitaire français dont je faisais partie et la première promotion d’étudiants de théâtre de l’académie de la Culture de Lettonie.

Liepaja the third biggest city in Latvia, located in the south-western side of the country, on the Baltic Sea coast. Liepaja is famed for its incomparable sense of culture and Liepaja is home to some of the local entrepreneurs who are spending their time to create an extra value for clients. Let's have a look on some of the most perspective ones.

I have been a Heavy Metal fan since I was a little girl. My older brothers inspired me to listen to metal and rock ‘n’ roll and, since then, my favorite bands and songs follow my personality and mood and give me inspiration. But I have never learned to play any musical instrument, like most of the fans eventually do. It was when I was a little girl that I also became really fond of writing and reading.

That catchphrase 'Latvia - best enjoyed slowly' can certainly be applied to me! My first of several visits to the country was some thirty-five years ago at the beginning of the 1980's. During my latest visit in May this year I was particularly aware of how important my long and slowly unfolding experience of the country over the years has been. It has so greatly enriched both my enjoyment and my ever increasing affection and respect for a fascinating destination that is still strangely one of Europe's best-kept secrets.

We arrived in Riga on a Saturday, tired, sweaty, and jet-lagged. I had officially arrived at my destination for my first trip to Europe. After hearing stories from my grandparents about the history of Eastern Europe, where they were both born and raised, I had finally landed in a place that I knew held so much history, culture, and stories to discover.

When I first came to Latvia three years ago, I travelled from Prague to Rīga in a tiring bus trip – 22 hours in a small seat, surrounded by restless Czech, Russian and Polish students. It was the first time in my life that I was travelling outside of Brazil. For a traveller from a relatively small town called Balneário Camboriú, Prague’s cultural and historical greatness was a shock.

Unlike Christopher Walsh, who wrote movingly in “Latvia in Review” recently about his love for choral music and his resulting decision to move from the United States to Latvia, I grew up in a Latvian family. Both sets of grandparents emigrated from Latvia toward the end of World War II, settling first in Germany, then in America, where my parents met and were married. It is a story that is shared by countless Latvian (and other) families.
