Über Lettland / About Latvia

Von hölzernen Kirchen, über riesige unterirdische Anlagen, bis hin zum vergessenen Herrenhaus. In Lettland gibt es viele Orte, die es sich zu erkunden lohnt. Das 64.589 km² große Land ist sehr stark russisch geprägt. Es sprechen 37% der Bevölkerung als Muttersprache Russisch. Die lutherische Kirche Lettlands ist mit der römisch-katholischen Kirche in Deutschland vergleichbar. Zahlreiche Gotteshäuser stehen heute in Lettland leer. Zum Großteil aus Holz gebaut, halten sie den starken Wintern Lettlands unbeheizt allerdings nur wenige Jahre stand.
