Whenever people are talking about Latvia, it is almost the same as they're just talking about the capitol: the city of Riga, which is already a well-known destination for celebrations.
When talking to people that have visited Latvia, they can tell you everything about the wild nightlife, parties, (garlic) food with names they cannot pronounce and of course the old town centre with her beautiful monuments, cathedrals and churches. But if you'd ask them if they have ever been outside the city to actually visit the rest of the country, you can easily expect an answer like: 'I'm sorry, no time', 'Nah, life here is good' or 'Leave me alone I have a hangover!'.
