Overview

One of the three main ports in Latvia is Riga. The other two are Ventspils and Lepaja. A vast majority of transits go through these ports. Lativa is the main route through the Baltic Sea for transit trade. There are also small ports in Latvia that handle smaller ships, fishing, and wood products. Riga is located on a 10 mile stretch along the Daugava River.

Things to Do

When you are in Riga, be sure to check out Dome Cathedral, which is considered to be the largest church in the Baltic States. Dome Cathedral was built in the 13th century and has gone through many renovations. This church contains an organ that is dated back to 1844.

The Riga Castle houses the Museum of Foreign Art and Museum of Latvian History. The castle was founded in 1330 and has a wooded architecture. Upon seizure of the Swedes, Annexes were constructed in 1641.
