IL-28 at Skulte


The monument of Ilyushin Il-28 military aircraft is located in a small village Skulte, 100 meters next to RIX.
Skulte was a closed military area before 1993, which was home for 27th division of Soviet Air Defence Forces.
People living in this area were also serving the Anti-Aircraft base in Marupe.

You wouldn't believe but this photo was taken in color mode a few days ago :)
For me it looks more like it was taken right after Second World War by a fighter pilot flying over Riga :)

Gray Tunnel

Gray Tunnel
Recent years all the Riga media talks and writes so much about ugly Soviet architecture in city and that it all must be refurbished or demolished at all. And what we see?
A newest pedestrian tunnel under crossroads of 13 Janavara and Gogola iela, which was built in late 2009.

Rainbow street

Soviet building in autumn
All these buildings are located in Purvicems 2 area at Varavīksnes gatve, which literally means Rainbow road.
It sounds especially ironic in early winter :)
