I always like to say that Latvia is more than just Riga. There is plenty to see outside the city, especially if you have more than a weekend. Beautiful evergreen forests, white sand beaches, lots of lakes in which to take a refreshing dip, and lovely red-roofed towns wound through with cobblestone streets, to begin with. But if you have just forty-eight hours for Latvia, Riga is a wonderful place to explore. This weekend guide will get you going.
