Officially known as the Republic of Latvia, this northern European country is adjacent to Russia, and shares a border with Estonia, Lithuania and Belarus.
Covering an expanse of 24,938 sq miles, Latvia has a population of almost 2 million. This means it is relatively small in European terms, but it is considered to be a fast-growing nation.
A member of the EU, Latvia is working hard to establish trade relationships with other European countries. This means that parcel traffic to and from Latvia is increasing.
Migration between the UK and Latvia has a long history, with many people from the geographical region settling in Britain over the past few decades.
This means having family spread across both the UK and Latvia is very common.
