    Nature and gardens

    LV - Kalinkavicy

    This point lying between the Baltic Sea and the gulf of Riga is magical. Cape Kolka seems a world away, in a place where nature's elements reign supreme. Here the sea is not welcoming, nor is the wind a mere gentle breeze, yet it is a true pleasure t..

    Architecture, castles and historic districts
