Latvia’s capital is Riga, home to museums and churches, notable wooden and art nouveau architecture, a vast Central Market and a medieval Old Town.
Latvia’s main export partners are Lithuania, Russia and Estonia while its main import partners are Lithuania, Germany and Poland.
The Latvian flag is one of the oldest in the world. Written records of the red-white-red Latvian flag have existed since the second half of the 13th century. The distinctive dark red color of the Latvian flag is sometimes referred to, by the rest of the world, as ‘Latvian red’.
