Latvia has over 12500 rivers, as well as 2256 lakes that are bigger than a square kilometre.
Latgale in the East of Latvia is "the Land of the Blue Lakes", having most of them. Most inland waters are well suited for swimming and fishing. Although some of Latvia's rivers have had their courses straightened, most rivers retain their natural contours. As a result, their banks are home to such now rare European wildlife as otter, beaver and common kingfisher. Latvia is one of the few places in the Baltic Sea region where natural salmon spawning areas still remain. There are plenty of rivers suitable for canoeing and rafting.
