What cultural faux pas should I try to avoid making in Latvia?

Answer this Question

We asked people in Latvia if they could share any humorous cultural blunders they commited. For new expats, keep in mind that these incidents are an inevitable part of expat life. Learning to laugh about them is the key!...

"It is important to be aware of cultural differences when visiting Latvia. It is important to be respectful of local customs and traditions. It is considered rude to be late for appointments or social engagements. It is also important to dress modestly and avoid wearing revealing clothing. It is also important to avoid discussing sensitive topics such as politics or religion. It is also important to be aware of local etiquette when dining, such as not starting to eat until the host has given the signal to begin. Finally, it is important to be aware of local laws and regulations and to respect them," commented one expat who made the move to Latvia.
