Latvia's seashore is more popular with Lithuanian vacationers than the Lithuanian seaside resort town of Palanga, since the Latvian resorts are more hospitable and offer cheaper and accommodation of better quality, the Lithuanian portal "Alfa.lt" reports.

The portal's reporter spent three days travelling from Jurmala to Kolka along the western coast of the Gulf of Riga. He saw many cars with Lithuanian license plates, and met at least one Lithuanian family in every second resort or camping site.

The reporter believes that Latvians can take pride in their unaltered coastline, inventive design of resorts, and hospitality.

On the other hand, it is extremely difficult to find a room in Palanga when weather is good or a major event is about to take place, and accommodation becomes much more expensive. The prices in Latvia are growing as well; however, the Lithuanians find them much more acceptable.

The Latvian coastline also offers more places where Lithuanian families with children are warmly welcomed.
