Riga – Discover the Gauja National Park
The Gauja National Park is the largest and oldest of the national parks in Latvia, characterized by great biological diversity, a variety of landforms, natural springs, sandstone outcrops, picturesque views, and unique natural, cultural and historical monuments.
The Gauja National Park was established in 1973. It stretches over more than 222395 acres, protecting the most beautiful section of the Gauja Valley along the Gauja River between Valmiera and Murjani.
On the way to Tallinn shortstop in Pärnu – one of the most popular
resort towns in Estonia. The ultimate summer holiday destination in Estonia, Pärnu attracts holidaymakers with its large sandy beach, numerous restaurants, cocktail bars, spas, and a relaxed, laid-back vibe.
Pärnu is the biggest town in Estonia, almost as big as Berlin. Pärnu’s area places it in the top 100 of the world, ahead of such giants as Milan, Athens, Vienna, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Toronto, and Hamburg as well as Copenhagen, Stockholm, and Amsterdam. Regardless of the large area, however, the density of the population of Pärnu is only 23 people per square mile.
This medieval city has an easygoing and romantic flair to it. Being the largest resort in Estonia, Pärnu is also home to a variety of spas from large water parks to more intimate and historical bathhouses.
Long, white sandy beaches, shallow waters, and “the best Sun in Estonia” attract Estonians and visiting guests alike. The beautiful beach promenade is ideal for walking, cycling, and roller-skating with playgrounds, water fountains, and play areas offering days full of fun and joy for children.
If you are feeling adventurous, try water skiing, yachting, or paddling a canoe or a kayak down the Pärnu river to the open sea and nearby islets.
