University of Latvia
Riga

The University of Latvia was founded on September 28, 1919 on the basis of the former Riga Polytechnic (founded in 1862). In 1923, this school received its now resumed name - the University of Latvia (Universitas Latviensis).

Many popular politicians are graduates, including prime ministers of Latvia, doctor of physics Ivars Godmanis and Einars Repše, and member of parliament and former minister for education and science, doctor of philology Ina Druviete.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
