Another notable language of Latvia is the nearly extinct Livonian language of the Finnic branch of the Uralic language family, which enjoys protection by law; Latgalian a dialect of Latvian is also protected by Latvian law as a historical variation of the Latvian language.

Currency:

The Latvian Lat (LVL) is the official currency of Latvia. The Lat was first introduced in 1922 when it replaced the Latvian ruble; however when Latvia became a part of the USSR in 1940, the USSR ruble replaced the Lat.
