Cultural stays in Latvia, another way to look at History
Latvia is a small country in Eastern Europe bordering Russia. And, like Lithuania and Estonia, the country has lived a totally different history from us. It is more than interesting to discover another point of view on the history of Europe. But also understand the stakes that pushed Eastern countries to join the European Union in 2004.
But, a cultural stay in Latvia is not limited to that. To explore Riga, the capital, is to discover a fascinating architecture that mixes the influences of Western Europe and Russia. It’s a surprising mix and a wonder for the eyes. In some neighborhoods, you can think you are in the center of Paris and two streets after in the heart of Russia!
On the business side, the Baltic countries are not left out, with big names in the digital world like Skype! Moreover, the three countries are taking exceptional measures to attract as many companies as possible to their territories: tax exemption, ease of recruitment, simplified visas. Google has already invested billions of dollars in these countries, and pushes young entrepreneurs to growth.
Moreover, Latvia and Estonia are among the countries with the highest standard of living in Europe: the cost of wages is low, but so is the cost of living.
