My second panoramic photo (please use horizontal scrollbar to see the whole picture) of the abandoned border-crossing point between Latvia and Lithuania called Būtingė - Rucava, which was visited during my trip to Nida.
Liepāja International Airport is one of 3 major airports in Latvia, but currently it has no regular flights.
I couldn't miss the opportunity to take photo of this small airport on my way from Pavilosta to Lithuanian border
Ventspils is the largest port of Latvia, which is located 185km (115mi) Northwest from Riga.
Many regular ferries are departing from here to different regions of Baltic Sea, e.g to Germany, Russia, Sweden.
This picture of Transeuropa and Watling Street was made on my trip to Nida between P124 road and Pavilosta
I came to ghost town Irbene to make a better photo of Radiotelescope RT-32, but again I was unlucky
The antenna's site was closed, therefore I could take a photo only from remote road, which is not so good again.
Photo was taken on my way to Neringa between Kolka and Road to Ventspils.
Moles aka breakwaters are very common structures seen on Latvian coast (e.g. Riga's Mole) and almost all of them are quite romantic, but sometimes dangerous place for promenade.
This one was photographed in Roja on my way from Mersrags to Roja's exit and entrance sign
The harbour in a small fisherman town Mērsrags, which is located on the coast of Riga's gulf.
This is an experiment work created by stitching many small photos by Hugin software into single panoramic photo.
Check for previous stop in Engure or continue to Rojas mols
Travelling around the world I understand that beaches in Latvia are ones of the most beautiful in the world.
White sand, blue skies and almost no annoying insects. Unfortunately they are like this only few months per year :(
This is the next photo after my stop in Jaunkemeri. The next is Kupla priede Tower.
Railway station is one of the few points worth to see in Priedaine (another one is White Dune)
Priedaine is located on right coast of Lielupe river and it is the most closest Jurmala's neighborhood from Riga.
This photo is the beginning of my road story to Lithuania via coastline. Next stop is cafe in Jaunkemeri
