Embassy of Sweden in Riga is located on a small little-known street Andreja Pumpura iela in Quiet Centre.
The building itself is as modest as everything Swedish, including the King Carl XVI Gustaf, who usually is driving Volvo S60 himself.
By the way, his beaituful wife Queen Silvia (of Latin origin) is coming to Riga this Wednesday, so many Latvians have a chance to see a queen with own eyes
These dinky gates is a doorway to the embassy of the United Kingdom in Riga at 5 Jura Alunāna street
In case UK citizens will decide to quit European Union during the referendum next year, this place will be surrounded by queues as many Latvian people live and work in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and other countries of the the Foggy Albion.
Embassy of Moldova is located on Zigfrīda Annas Meierovica bulvāris 14. Moldova is one of the former Soviet Republics, which also gained independence together with Latvia in 1991, hence there were always warm relationship between our two countries. Nowadays Moldova experiences political, territorial instability and it maybe the reason why Moldova is the most poorest country in Europe.
Embassy of Poland (Ambasada Rzeczypospolitej Polskiej w Rydze) Last days a lot of people came here to lay down a funeral wreath, lit the candle and pay their respects. 12 April 2010 is announced as a national day of mourning in many countries including Latvia.
Österreichische Botschaft (Austrian Embassy) is located in the area of the most beautiful architecture in Riga. Sind österreichische Volk unter meinem Lesern? :) See also of German Embassy, which building is not less beautiful.
I guess that nobody in Riga think that residence of American Embassy on Raina boulevard is a nice building, which adorns city. Despite its very center location (it is next nearest building to French Embassy) it looks like a fortified warehouse. For openers the building has 24*7 strong security, 2 fences and the window guards.
Ambassade de France (Embassy of France) resides in one of the most beautiful buildings in Riga. This house is a perfect architectural example of Art Nouveau or Jugendstil how it is called more often in Riga. Actually in the beginning of the last century it was the residence of British Embassy. Next nearest building is American Embassy, which could play a role of negative for French Embassy.
One of the oldest Embassies in Riga is Embassy of Germany. Address is Boulevard Raiņa 13. Long time the number 13 was hidden, because apparently it is very unlucky. So address was as simple as just Riga, Latvia Embassy of Germany :)
This building is embassy of glorious nation of Kazakhstan in Riga :) I am one of them, who like Borat movie. And I do not understand why a lot of people find this movie offensive. This movie is a really big joke about stupid people and derision of many stupid fears. Watch a nice video on youtube.
One of the most beautiful embassies in Riga is embassy of Russian Fedaration. Only 15 years ago Latvia was a part of Russia (USSR), but now there are more than just complicated relations with Moscow. There are vague rumours that below this building is a secret prison, tunnels to other important objects in Riga, and even that this embassy is connected to Secret Moscow Metro 2.
