The Routes of Latvia’s Statehood

The Routes of Latvia’s Statehood

This tour map presents 7 Routes of Latvia’s Statehood that offer an insight into the history of establishment of Latvia as a state. The routes invite to find out about places, events and personalities that have played a significant role in the formation of the State of Latvia and the emergence of its national identity. A traveller will also learn about historical state entities that have existed in the territory earlier and have left their heritage that is part of Latvia’s culture.

Included: Map of Latvia (scale 1: 550000) with the 7 Routes of Latvia’s Statehood marked and briefly described. Descriptions of 80 sites and objects related to the history of Latvia’s statehood. Descriptions of 85 open farms that have been awarded the Latvian Heritage sign. The map is available in LV/RU and EN/DE languages. 

The 7 Routes of Latvia’s Statehood have been developed within the programme for celebration of the centenary of Latvia as a state. The celebration events continue from 2017 to 2021. The key message of the centenary celebration is „I am Latvia” focusing on people as the core value of the state. They shape today’s life in the country and, together with their young generation, they lay foundations for the future.

The project is implemented with the support of the State Culture Capital Foundation.
