Since the restoration of independence in 1991, Latvia has been pursuing full economic and political integration into European and world structures.
Latvia is a country of splendid and diverse natural landscapes. Forests cover 44% of the territory.
Latvia has the largest otter population in Europe, and there is a much greater chance of seeing the rare black stork in Latvia’s forests than in any other European country.
