From 2017 to 2021, Latvia celebrates a hundred years since it became an independent state. With festivities at home and all around the world, Latvia presents the best it can offer in culture, lifestyle and innovation. We  explore, create and celebrate – for the prosperity of Latvia!

The official celebrations started on May 4, 2017 with the Embrace Latvia initiative when people around the country planted one hundred oaks along Latvia’s outer border, symbolically laying the foundation of strength for the next 100 years. Now we continue, 2019 being the year when many of our state institutions celebrate their 100.
