About us

We started on the 19th of April 1994 when the specialized map and travel literature outlet -Jana Seta Map shop- opened its doors to the first customers in the newly renovated Berg’s Bazaar bulding in Riga.At that time it was the first and only specialized map shop in the Baltics.

Opening a shop was a must as Jana Seta Map Publishers, with its strong cartographers’ team, had to sell their products and the changes in the country asked for a new retail sales system.In addition to the basic product range from Jana Seta Map Publishers, products by the World’s leading map and tourist guide publishers were also sold in the outlet.

Together with the constant in-going and out-going tourism development in Latvia, our shop has grown to become one of the leading map shops in the whole of Eastern Europe.Many trips around Latvia and abroad have started at the shelves of our map and tourism literature.

Jana Seta Map shop Ltd is the sole distributor of Jana Seta Map Publishers’ products outside the Baltic States.

We sell also a wide range of maps and travel literature by other Latvian publishers and cartographic products, tourism guides, globes , compasses , GPS receiver and other products from more than 50 foreign companies.

The former USSR army general staff topographic map and city plans ( published 1949 - 1991) have a special place in our assortment.
