Although most travellers to Latvia rarely ever stray beyond the city limits of Riga, the rest of the country is littered with wonderful sights from medieval crusader castles and 19th-century farmsteads to winter sport resorts. For a short day trip from Riga, take an hour train ride to the picturesque town of Sigulda - an ideal place to see castles. But if you're feeling more adventurous, visit the historic seaside city of Liepāja on the west coast of Latvia for excellent architecture and a fun, laid back atmosphere. For Latvia's best Baroque masterpiece take a short ride to Rundāle Palace (see photo above), but if you want to see one of the country's best preserved castles then take a train to Cēsis.
