Latvia is beneficial not only for its geographical location and the intertwining of economic interests, but also for the opportunity to experience the unique originality of the country’s culture and immerse yourself in the historical atmosphere of Riga and the other cities in Latvia. Riga and Latvia are generally known as the birthplace of famous composers, musical performers, artists, writers, and actors.
Every five years, a unique event is held in Latvia – the All-Latvian Song and Dance Festival. About 30,000 people participate in the celebration – choirs, dance groups, brass bands, folklore groups, and ethnographic ensembles from Latvia and other countries. The holiday, held since 1873, is included in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage. In honor of the celebration of Latvia’s 100th anniversary in 2018, the song and dance festival was included in the Latvian cultural canon, which has 100 symbols of Latvian culture.
The cultural life of Riga and Latvia is rich not only by representatives of national art, but also by many events of foreign artists. Summer music festivals by the sea, and film festivals of local and foreign organizers are held annually in Latvia. Each year, Riga and Latvia are visited by a large number of world-famous musical performers of both classical and modern genres.
