You can get them from all over these days, Anttila, Stockmann etc. And browse your local body building shop.

Most common ones these days are the detachable (whatever) types, and some you can do press up and dips on. Like these:

You can get the basic bars in Antilla as well.

Check the width of your doors though if you want the detachable ones...There was a lot of problems with them sometime ago as they are usually made for a UK or US market and the door widths are different....or so forums said.

The one that Hong Kong sells is quite good, mine has lasted a couple of years now. Just make sure the door frame is sturdy and that the screws are more than adequate for the purpose.

Latvia?

You should have teamed up with these monsters and got a work out in!

In the meantime, if you're serious about doing some pull ups, check your local parks...a lot of them have pull up bars and bars for doing dips etc.

You can have the one I bought from Lidl (like this) for a pint, if your door frames are wide enough.
