Safety

Yes — Latvia is very safe to visit. It is important, as with any destination you might travel to, that you stay aware of your surroundings, use basic common sense, and continue with normal everyday precautions. Assuming you do all of that, Latvia is a safe destination to travel to. 
If you stay in Riga, avoid the Latgales neighbourhood and be especially cautious around Central Railway Station (as in every city).
Tukums is a safe city but don’t leave your bike or other expensive belongings unattended.
