Riga, Vidzeme (Northern Latvia), Latvia
Biggest city of the Baltic states with a population of about 2 million people. A platora of old churches and medieval walls and streets to stroll around in. Can be used as a base to vist Estonia and Lithuania as well as Russia and Finland. Quite cheap, as toe local income is very low. It has been discribed as an 'undiscovered Prague' for its medieval character.

On the first day I'd recommend going up the tower of St Peter's Church as you can get a good idea of your bearings so you won't be wandering aimlessly trying to find somewhere! The old town's pedestrian streets can be confusing as there are a few squares there!

And some really cheap beer to be had. But don't drink the tap water. There is a cool restaurant that has an ice rink with it and a lot of ice sculptures. It served buffet style traditional food and was excellent. Go in winter if you can stand the cold.

Jurmala, Vidzeme (Northern Latvia), Latvia
Good Azerbaijiani restuarant on the pedestrian strip in Jurmala, and the nude beach is a bit frightening ;) When we were there visiting from Finland it was the festival of FInnish culture... Just what we did NOT need to see....

Salaspils, Vidzeme (Northern Latvia), Latvia
This was the highlight of our first trip to Latvia - we went to the Darzini train station and looked for the mysterious path through the woods - tried several and got lost many times but eventually found it and it was amazing - gigantic sculptures of Russians giving the prverbial finger to the Nazis, and then there was the eternal noise coming from one sculpture - awesome! Don;t miss this spot - even you get lost - when you get in the woods - hint - the path is the one going to the RIGHT
