I am visiting friends in August and have arranged for a hire car. I would welcome any advice on the best route to get from Riga to Liepaja on the Baltic coast ( about 220 km west), the approximate journey time and any tips on what to do and to avoid whilst driving around Latvia!
If anyone knows where I can get a decent road map (written in English) and any other useful info that would be great. Are all the road signs in Latvian? What is the condition of the roads outside the main cities?
