Today I got a nice postcard from Latvia! The postcard shows a gloomy scene along Latvia's Baltic Sea coast. With 500 kilometres of beaches, about a third of Latvia's border runs along the Baltic Sea. This coastline is dotted with modern ports, resort towns, quaint fishing villages, and secluded natural areas. The coastline often divided into two parts - the part within the Gulf of Riga and the part openly facing the Baltic Sea. Thanks Helga!
