Vidzeme: see Livonia.
Vidzeme is one of the cultural and historical regions of Latvia. Literally meaning "the Middle Land" it is situated in north-central Latvia and roughly corresponds to the Alūksne, Cēsis, Gulbene, Limbaži, Madona, Valka, Valmiera counties and parts of Aizkraukle, Ogre and Riga counties north of the Daugava river. Sometimes it is also known as Livland, though it comprises only a small part of traditional Livland. Present Vidzeme is the Latvian part of Swedish Livonia and Riga.
