Hotels in Riga, Latvia

Short Holiday Breaks in the capital city of Latvia - Riga

Hotel in Riga in Latvia - aerial view

Quite a history - this tiny state of Latvia only managed 26 years of freedom out of almost 1000 years - Riga was chosen by the Germans as major port in the 10th century who then battled with the Swedes in the 15th century who in turn fought the Russian Tsar armies - and lost!

Then the Ruskies stayed until being pushed out again by the Germans in 1915 only to return for 25 years before the sound of Jackboots on the cobbles in 1940 with the return of the Russians in 1946-until their exit in 1994.

So today Lavia is getting used to being left alone and now all sweetness, light and freedom - apart from being a new member of the EU and having to face VAT along with the rest of us..............
