Learn Russian in Latvia

Crossed by the Daugava River, Latvia occupies a central position between the two other Baltic countries, Estonia and Lithuania. Russian is spoken in its purest version here, alongside Latvian, the official language. With an average altitude of less than 300 metres, this other “flat country” is mostly covered with forests and natural meadows, alongside 500 kilometres of white sand beaches and welcoming cities combining Hanseatic and baroque architecture. Riga, 2014’s European Capital of Culture, is a classically beautiful city with a taste for the modern.

After gaining independence in 1991, the former Soviet Republic became a member of the EU in March 2004. As a “good pupil” among Baltic countries, Latvia’s switch to the euro in 2014 has already helped provide excellent development opportunities for this small country located on the Eastern banks of the Baltic Sea. Frequent and cheap flights connect the country to the rest of Europe, plus no visa is necessary to enter the territory.

In Latvia, gastronomy, beaches and national parks are all equally charming. Many of its sights have been listed on the UNESCO World Heritage list, genuine treasures for lovers of beautiful landscapes and architecture.
