Baltic National Park Guide (English)

This guidebook offers practical advice and infor- mation which you can take along on your travels. It is meant for people who are interested in the environ- ment and various cultural and historical monuments. It is also intended for active tourists who like hiking, bi- king, boating or cross-country skiing. Public transpor- tation services will not always deliver you to the de- sired locations quickly and conveniently, so we have also given though to those readers who drive their own cars. The guide covers the most important information about all of the national parks in the Baltic States (14 in all), along with their most important environmental, cultural and historical values, as well as their most in- teresting points of interest. The authors have attached a map of each national park, along with GPS co-ordi- nates for the most interesting destinations.

Information can become out of date very quickly, and many things can change, so before you set off on your trip, we suggest that you should contact the visi- tor or tourism information centre of the relevant park. The author of this guidebook has personally visited all of the national parks and the destinations cited therein, doing so on a regular basis over the past 20 years. All of the routes which are listed have been examined and checked out.

Map of Military Heritage

This map of Latvia’s military heritage is aimed not just at inviting people to go on a unique trip to learn about Lat- via’s military history, but also at offering a single source of information about little known, but very interesting objects about which we have very little evidence.

Military heritage in terms of this map refers to histor- ical outdoor objects such as redoubts, fortresses, certain castles, shoreline defence batteries, bunkers, dugouts, locations of major battles, former military bases, army airfields and bases, as well as museums and collections located in places where history can be studied close up. The map mostly covers military objects from the last few centuries – objects which are related to different military forces and the things that they did.

Many of the destinations are well-appointed, and everal have available guides. There are a few destina- ons which are accessible only in accordance with spe- fic rules. Others are not well-appointed or are closed o visitors. In the latter case (the army base at Skrunda, or instance), it is worth visiting the destinations anyway o as to place them on the list of military heritage objects hat you have seen.

This map includes descriptions of 60 military objects, complete with photographs, including histori- al ones. There is also information about 239 places which offer accommodations. Many of the objects re in NATURA 2000 territories, and some are cultural monuments.

Botanical guide. The Plant Finder

The main goal of the authors of this guide is to help you to spot the types of plants and mushrooms that are all around us. We really want to tell you interesting things about them.

“Worth Seeing” is our section on Latvia’s most interesting botany-related nature trails, including information about huge and/or interesting trees of various species, alleys of trees, botanical gardens, dendrology parks, other types of plant collections, museums, interesting farms, etc. You can visit each of them for yourself. We chose destinations in all of Latvia’s historical regions.

“Plant and Mushroom Routes” contains a list of ready-made routes, al- though we suggest that you bring along a guide to make sure that you en- joy the route thoroughly. Still, you can take the trips individually, adapt- ing the process to your own interests and capabilities.

“Plant Finder” is the biggest and most important part of the guide. There are included the photos of more than 400 different most common plants, lichens and mushrooms species in order to help you to recognize them in the field. Each species has got some interesting facts or stories as far as its possible.

“Protect and preserve” is our list of all of the protected species of plants which are often plucked for bouquets and other compositions, often with the person not even realising that he or she has picked a protected plant. These are species which need to be left alone right where they are.

This guide can be used as a workbook in your practical observations. Each of the «Worth seeing» objects has a check-box. Mark the sites you have visited. In the «Plant Finder» section, write the date you spotted the plant in the line «When ... », and the name of the place in the line “Where...”.
