A new format of 3D visits brings us one step closer to creation of increasingly profound “immersion” into virtual environments and opens new horizons in development of highly interactive multimedia presentations.
These pages will introduce you – through 360° panoramas, photo galleries and multimedia virtual tours – to versatility and colours of Latvia.
