Latvia Culture and Etiquette
Meeting and Greeting
A quick, firm handshake with direct eye contact is the traditional greeting.
Latvians have rather controlled facial expressions and are not quick to smile.
Their initial reserve warms up after they get to know you.
When greeting a close friend or family member, some Latvians offer a light kiss on the cheek, although many do not, so it is not a universal measure of the intimacy of the relationship.
Titles are very important and denote respect.
When introducing someone, it is common to state their first and surname with the honorific title "kungs" for a man and "kundze" for a woman appended.
Wait until invited to use their first name.
