Latgale for the senses

Travel routes in Latvia: Latgale | Sixt rent a car

Latgale - The Land of Blue Lakes is the only region in Latvia that takes pride in its distinctive, still widely used language, as well as its dominant religion - Catholicism. Nature - Daugava meanders, Rāzna National Park, Lake Velnezers, The Great Lime Tree Hill watch tower; crafts - potters, carpenters; culture - Latgale Embassy GORS; Religion - Aglona Basilica - one of the largest centres of Catholicism in Latvia, which flocks together thousands of pilgrims every year in August, and even the gastronomy will surprise every traveller who gets to know the praised Latgallian hospitality. It is possible that the Latgallian language and religion largely determines Latgallians’ different mentality and sturdy traditions. But better to see and experience once than hear a hundred times!

Untamed Kurzeme

Travel routes in Latvia: Kurzeme | Sixt rent a car

Kurzeme - character, uniqueness and diversity - these are but a few key words used to describe this colourful and at the same time untamed region of Latvia, which is endowed with spite and might. The presence of the Baltic Sea and the constant winds have affected both people and nature. Jūrkalne Seashore Bluffs, Pāvilosta, Karosta Prison, electric go-karts and for some contrast - Skrunda Manor, the Wine Hill of Sabile and the intensity of Kuldīga. All of this can only be experienced in Kurzeme! But Kurzeme inhabitants are not ones to delay - so let’s get going!
