Lonely Planet lists 10 reasons to visit Latvia

Lonely Planet, the popular series of tourist guidebooks, has published a list of the most compelling reasons to visit Latvia.

The British-based publisher of some of the world's biggest-selling guides lists Riga's art nouveau architecture, the pretty towns of Kuldiga and Cesis, baroque Rundale palace among its receommendations, along with less obvious attractions such as Latvia's surprisingly good beaches and even the grim legacy of Soviet buildings.

Latvia seems to be attracting a good deal of positive coverage in the UK at the moment with even the Daily Mail raving about the beauty of a Latvian bog.
