This creative picture was found on Riga's future development website, and I couldn't resist not to publish it, because this futuristic view of Riga is so intriguing! :)
I hope Latvijas Tilti will do their job fast and without scandals like it did happen with Sothern Bridge.
Purvciems (Marsh Ville) aka Purchik is the most populous neighborhood in Riga. 62,000 people live in Purvciems, which became part of Riga only in 1935. Although sovietization began in early 1970s. Minsk and Mebelu Nams are the best known reference points in Purvciems. Picture has been taken during Airplane Tour over Riga.
Two perfectly straight lines going down beyond the horizon are Brivibas gatve aka road to Saint Petersburg and the railway of the same direction. Photo has been taken during Air Tour with Jonathan and James.
