During the long winter, Latvia shows its most authentic landscape: the pictures taken in 2013 for Geo (RAI3) show the thick snow cover on the wide forests of the small Baltic state. In the national Gauja park there are bears, deers, boars and Velga Vitola, too, the "animals’ mum": an extraordinary woman, who takes care of the savage species and represents the close relationship between Latvian people and nature.
