I just recently received my first postcard LV-110886 from Latvia. It shows Latvia's location in the Baltic region of Northern Europe with its national flag. It is surrounded by Estonia to the north; by Russia to the east; by Belarus to the southeast; and by Lithuania to the south. Sweden is located to its west across the Baltic sea. It has 2.07 million people and an area of 64,589 sq km (24,938 sq mi), making it one of the least populous and least densely populated countries of the European Union. The capital of Latvia is Riga.
