We found this gem of a video on Youtube about the upcoming Latvian Council of the EU presidency for the next half year. The reason we decided to share it is not because we are fascinated by politics, but because it really gives genuine insight into the personality of this charming destination and its locals. In a nutshell, Latvia is flat in landscape, quiet in temper, cold in temperature and small in size. Her inhabitants are honest, hard on the outside but friendly and caring on the inside. (But the video explains this much better than I do.) However, what we here at Stag Republic know about Latvians is that they are genuinely welcoming with all foreigners – including the stags we take care of out there. So if you’re planning a trip to Riga, take a look at the video and get a taste for this cold country and the warm-hearted people you will meet there.
