Let's continue our tour of batteries of Mangalsala (Batteries of Mangalsala or Abandoned Forts Near Riga. P.1)! The doors has survived in this cellar. Exit from the cellars. Probably there was amenity space here. There's the battery of 152 mm guns on the hill. This is...
I continue the series of reviews of the wonderful country of Latvia. Taking into account the fact that Riga is a large port city, historically, there must be fortifications near it. Unfortunately, the guidebooks didn't tell us anything about this and we turned to Google for help. It told us...
Dear friends, today I will tell you about one of the iconic buildings of Riga, which, in fact, has become a hallmark of the city - about Riga Dome Cathedral. There are several Dome Cathedrals around the world, as the word takes after the Latin sayings "The House of God" and "to the ...
I'd like to tell you about several museums in Riga! In general, there are a lot of them, but I particularly liked 2 of them. I'll tell you about these museums. I was impressed by "The Latvian War Museum" and "The Museum of the Occupation of Latvia". Let's talk...

I'd like to tell you about one interesting place I found in Latvia (Riga). At first, it pleased me, and then - angered. This is a restaurant where dumplings are served. It is located in the Old Town on Kaļķu iela. This is a budget-friendly option, especially when you consider the fact that...
Dear friends, let's take a walk through the streets of Riga. This is one of the most amazing cities I have ever seen and I will try to show it to you. City has miraculously absorbed the medieval antiquity, wealth and poverty of the times of the Russian Empire, the Soviet past and modern trends. I...
Riga is a very comfortable and beautiful city for the evening and night walks. Both for cultural and romantic ones and for the "race through bars". We decided to combine these two styles. ;)  There are beautifully illuminated bridges in Riga. City Canal is very beautiful at night...
