Latvia Geography, Climate, and Weather


Latvia is situated on the Baltic coast and borders Estonia in the north, Lithuania in the south, the Russian Federation in the east and Belarus in the southeast.
The coastal plain is mostly flat, but inland to the east the land is hilly with forests and lakes. There are about 12,000 rivers in Latvia, the biggest being the River Daugava. The ports of Riga and Ventspils never freeze over during the winter.

Latvia’s climate is generally dominated by marine influences. More continental conditions exist in the eastern portion of the republic.
Near the sea, summers are cool and winters are mild. Snow covers the ground from two to more than four months of the year. Summers are usually warm, with average daily temperatures exceeding 25° C (exceeding 77° F).
