Celebrating Freedom

The history of Latvia is a complex one, full of dramatic twists and lucky turns, but one element is always at the core of it all - our striving for Freedom. With arms in a battlefield, singing revolutions, or national crowd-funding projects, this is our way of saying: "We all understand what freedom means, as she begins in every one of us". One testimony to that - the story of our Freedom Monument.

Latvia - celebrating 100

Where do Latvians charge their souls when the batteries are low? Here. Our land is our strength, our ancient songs – our guiding light. Latvia – our power-station by the Baltic Sea, in Northern Europe, celebrating one hundred years.

Happy Centenary, dear Estonians!

Hand to hand. From people to people. Wishing to thank for the friendship and support, the people of Latvia delivered symbolic birthday cakes to our neighbouring countries Lithuania, Estonia and Finland as our greeting on their upcoming centenaries. By bicycles, vintage cars, motorcycles, tractors, SUP boards – the journey of the cakes was filmed to be made into three "road-movies". Today, we present our greetings to Estonia. Palju õnne Eesti 100!
