THE MOST COMPLETE INFORMATION ABOUT LATVIAN WATERFALLS ON INTERNET
We have used that waterfalls
are seen in mountainous countries. Latvia does not
have mountains. But
we have got waterfalls here! They are not very large but still comprise
valuable part of our landscape.
Latvia is small country and it is not complicated to investigate it. The
popular movement of investigating our cultural and natural history is
here for long time already. So thus author have got known some 130 bigger
and smaller (ouch, very very small by international standards!) waterfalls.
Many of those would arise interest only in a small group of Latvian nature
investigation hardliners. But you see - sophisticated music or literature
also is devoured by few chosen ones :)
For the waterfalls, which author has seen personally, there is assigned
ranking, which shows, how much author liked the waterfall:
* - not interesting;
** - of local importance;
*** - worth to stop on the way;
**** - worth to travel there;
***** - very important monument for Latvian
? - not visited yet;
- - destroyed beyond recognition.
This small waterfall on Loja river tributary looks even a little funny...
Unusual, valuable element of landscape - would you agree?
