The first Latvian national road network (1918-1938)

The 20th century is particularly significant in Latvian history. During this period, unquestionable progress was made in the development of society. Major transformations took place in various fields. Initially it was a fight for survival, intertwined with an effort to preserve the Latvian nation as a community, as well as its culture. The three most significant dates of the 20th century for Latvia were 1918, 1940 and 1991, marking the creation, destruction and renewal of an independent state.
