I consider the trip to Lithuania and Latvia seaside this July (2+2children by car).
1.I am thinking about setting "my base" in Pape Lake area for some days.I expect not overcrowded (hopefully almost empty) beaches, and an interesting sight -Pape Lake itself. I can visit Liepaja and Palanga in rainy days. Is that correct?
2.Is Aizpute interesting to visit?
3.Is Kuldiga itself worthy to visit (apart from the waterfall)?
4.I would like to go further north- to visit Vintpils- Kolka (is it interesting area?)- Roja-National Park near Jurmala (is it interesting?) and city itself-Riga and coming back through Bauska (is there 3-rd-(means 15-17 July 2005) weekend of July medieval music fest?) and Rundale.
5.Will I miss something else worthy to visit in Kurzeme?Is there something else interesting for children (8,11) in this area?
4.What could be the average and minimum price/per person for acomodation in a private house or a camping hut - simple (no radio or TV but convenient bathroom/WC)standard in such area? Maybe any recomendations? Maybe quiet or wild camping places also for tents?
5.Has anybody heard anything about canoeing on Bartuva river in Lithuania or Latvia?
6.Could anybody reccomend other easy, short,nice (1-2 days)canoenig in Kurzeme?
7.What is specialite de la maison in Latvia?
Thanks for answer.
I would be thankful for any info about the lovely place in Latvia that is named Aizpute
