What to pack for Latvia
With sub-zero temperatures in winter and a typical maximum of 20°C in summer, warm layers are essential for a trip to Latvia.
Protect your eyes from the sun in summer and the gleaming white snow in winter with a pair of UV protected sunglasses.
Latvia experiences rain for almost half of the year, so pack a reliable raincoat or small umbrella to keep you dry.
A good book
With plenty of peaceful lakes and hidden courtyards, there will be ample opportunity to immerse yourself in a good book and watch the world go by.
An adaptor plug
Voltage in Latvia is 230V and the sockets are of Type F, with standard European 2-pin plugs.
