About Latvia


Latvia Flag
The map shows Latvia, an independent republic and one of the three Baltic states. The country is situated on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea, between Estonia and Lithuania. It borders Belarus, Estonia, Lithuania, and Russia, and it shares maritime borders with Sweden.


Latvia is a flat country situated in the East European Plain, the vast mountain-free part of Europe's north-eastern landscape. It is bounded by the Gulf of Riga in the northwest and by the Baltic Sea in the west. Latvia is, for the most part, a wooded moraine hill country with numerous lakes and a broad, unindented coastal plain. The longest rivers in Latvia are the Düna and the Gauja. Latvia's largest lake is Lake Lubāns with 80 km².

With an area of 64,589 km², Latvia is somewhat larger than twice the size of Belgium, or slightly larger than the US state of West Virginia.

The country is sparsely populated, just 1.91 million people (in 2019) live in the country. Latvia's principal city, cultural center, and national capital is Riga. Spoken languages are Latvian (official) and Russian.
