One of the very first photos in this blog, was the picture of a place, where New Library is going to be built.
Almost 7 years has been passed, and here it is, the new Latvian National Library aka Latvijas Nacionālā bibliotēka.
There are still some works going on, so it is not officially open yet.
Also, there are other photographs of LNB building taken from the same spot during the 7 years.
This photo of Latvian National Library during Staro Riga is selected in order to give you an opportunity to compare how LNB was looking in during Staro Riga 2008. Photo's source is Delfi. BTW, check the timeline of LNB Building since 2007.
One of long-term projects within this blog is watching of the Latvian National Library construction site. Check the timeline of LNB photos I took from the same position for the last 3 years. Still 2 years to go...
Mūkusala iela 46 - is the address of Trodeks main office. It is located between Railway bridge and Islands' bridge. An advanced mobile phone repair shop is also located here, which looks more like kinda laboratory from inside.
Hammer and Sickle is one of the most famous symbols of Soviet Union. Some of them still can be found in Riga, for example this one is in Mukusala area. You can see St Peter's Church through the embankment fence.
Last night in Riga was quite rage blizzard. In the morning everybody discovered the consequences of that like traffic jams and delay in transport. Riga is not ready for that kind of winter :) It took 3 times longer for me to reach my workplace. Railway Museum in the snow.
Unfortunately, I didn't took a shot when the foundations of Latvian National Library were laid. But I still continue making shots from the same position as one year before. This picture was taken around begin of October 2008. Have a look how it was in November 2007 January 2008 March 2008 Or all pictures of LNB Building together.
