Mażais Princis, in Latvian. Latvian  is a Baltic language spoken in the Baltic region. It is the language of Latvians and the official language of Latvia as well as one of the official languages of the European Union. It is sometimes known in English as Lettish, and cognates of the word remain the most commonly used name for the Latvian language in Germanic languages other than English.

Latvia is the first ex Soviet Union country I have visited.


Mozais Priņcs — in Latgalian. Latgalian is a Baltic language spoken in Latgale, the eastern part of Latvia. It is debated whether it is a separate language with heavy Latvian influence, due to historical mutual exposure, or a distinct dialect of Latvian. Nevertheless, its standardised form is recognised and protected as a “historical variety of the Latvian language” (vēsturisks latviešu valodas paveids) by Latvian law.
