A few days ago I visited Jurmala - the most popular and beautiful seaside destination in Latvia. Myself, I find a lot in common between some Polish seaside towns and villages and the Latvian Jurmala - especially the unrestrained nature. But, the architecture and style of tiny cafes (kafejnicas) and shops is very unique here in Latvia.
Another thing you'll never find anywhere else are ice cream with such unique flavours like Rigas Black Balzams (the national alcoholic drink - 45%), which I tried and are delicious, or beer ice cream which I've heard there are but we couldn't find them at this time of the year.
Latvia is definitely the country of fountains and other street furniture. Maybe it's because of the little distance to Scandinavian countries which pay a lot of attention to such urban details.
I really loved the beach in Jurmala.
Anna's boots. Nice contrast!
Just a Latvian girl :)
Pelmeni - traditional Latvian and Russian dumplings. These are mine - which means there are only veggie and cheese ones!
Cebureki. We've been told it's Latvian, but in reality it's Ukrainian. A kind of deep-fried pancake with meat. Mine is with cheese and dill only.
And another fun fact - there are many cats in Latvia! Both wild and domenic, all are beautiful!
