This year the Latvian Institute is offering slightly unusual Christmas cards, each of them promoting something that will happen next year.

Download cards here.


The first relates to the fact that in 2017, the Rīga-Gauja region will be the European Region of Gastronomy. A special concept, “Wild at Palate,” will be the guide to diverse dining pleasures in restaurants in Rīga, Sigulda, Cēsis and Valmiera. So let’s go Wild at Palate!


Another card relates to the fact that in 2017, Rīga will welcome choirs from all over the world for the Grand Prix of Nations and the 3rd European Choir Games. Singing together does bring nations together!


Last, but not least, the Latvian Institute seeks to promote Latvia’s amazing regional concert halls – the new Great Amber Hall in Liepāja, the GORS Concert Hall in Rēzekne, the Cēsis Concert Hall, and the recently renovated Dzintari Concert Hall in Jūrmala. Stars will be performing at all of these venues!
