Languages spoken in Latvia: Latvian.

Latvia is located in north-eastern Europe, in the centre of the Baltic States, and has been a member of the EU since 2005. Although GDP growth has been consistently above 6% since 2000, Latvia remains at the bottom of the EU in terms of per capita income. The need to catch up is enormous.

Latvia is culturally influenced mainly by Northern Europe. The old towns have the typical elements common in the area of the Hanseatic League.

Contemporary Latvian culture also has many connections to Sweden and Finland, but above all to the North German cultural area.

Origin of the country’s name    

The name of the Baltic state probably comes from the word Latgale. Lettgallen (Latvian: Latgale) is one of the four historical landscapes of Latvia and is considered the heartland of modern Latvia.
