2.0. Latvia – Geographical, Historical, Political, Economical and Demographical Overview
Latvia is located at the crossroads of Northern and Eastern Europe, on the east coast of the Baltic Sea. The Republic of Latvia is bounded by Estonia to the north, Russia and Belarus to the east and Lithuania to the south, and has a maritime border with Sweden to the west. (LIIA, 2008) Because of its strategic geographical location, the territory of Latvia has been the major influence on the country's diverse historical and cultural experiences.

Throughout the history countries like Germany, Poland, Sweden and Russia have invaded the territory of Latvia in full or in parts. On 18 November 1918, the independent Republic of Latvia was proclaimed for the first time. The loss of the independence came „on 23 August 1939 when the Soviet Union and the German Third Reich signed a treaty of non-aggression, which contained a secret protocol concerning the division of Eastern Europe into spheres of influence. As a result of this Latvia and the other Baltic countries became part of the Soviet sphere of influence.“ (LI, 2008) The renewal of independence was declared on 4th of May 1990.
