Car Rental in Latvia
Europcar car rental in Riga International Airport (RIX) or car hire in Riga city downtown offer to explore all of Latvia`s vibes and faces.
A tapestry of sea, lakes and woods, Latvia is best described as a vast unspoiled parkland with just one real city – its cosmopolitan capital, Riga. The country might be small, but the amount of personal space it provides is enormous. You can always secure a chunk of pristine nature all for yourself, be it for trekking, cycling or dreaming away on a white-sand beach amid pine-covered dunes. Having been invaded by every regional power, Latvia has more cultural layers and a less homogeneous population than its neighbors. People here fancy themselves to be the least pragmatic and the most artistic of the Baltic lot. They prove the point with myriad festivals and a merry, devil-may-care attitude.
The Republic of Latvia is found just south of Estonia, and north of Lithuania, on the Baltic Sea. Aside from over 300 miles of sandy coastline, more than 50% of the country is covered with thick, natural forests, which means that the Latvian people involve nature as a major part of their national culture. Latvian runes - or folk songs –-are preserved under UNESCO's Global Oral Heritage and the land is dotted with ancient, magical and sacred sites such as Pokainu forest, Latvia's equivalent of Stonehenge where it's said the spiritual glow can be seen from space, and Zilais Kalns - the Blue Mountain - a blue-misted mountain top near Valmiera. It is also said that the Holy Grail, along with other treasures of the Knight's Templar, are hidden somewhere in Latvia.
