Riga is changing as every living creature does and so do I. After many months of wandering around the world I am coming back to Riga.
Brand new photos taken with brand new camera and new untold short stories about Riga are on its way.
On the picture is the same railroad from to Jurmala to Riga, but this photo is taken 5 years later.
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.
Rīgas HES or Hidroelektrostacija (Hydroelectric Power Plant) was built in 1974 on Daugava river next to city border. Its dam holds a large amount of water behind it.
The plant serves also as bridge and connects Kekava town to Dole island, Zirnu island and Salaspils town.
Coming back from Vilnius to Riga I see a huge progress of new developments around the city, including this new overpass next to Z-Towers, between Zunda river and Martin Cemetery and over Daugavgrivas iela.
Does anybody know where it is possible to see the final presentation of this road completed?
You will never find any other advertisement in the world written in both Latvian and Lithuanian languages except this one, which is located 500 meters away from Latvian-Lithuanian border on Lithuania's side of Via Baltica road.
For a while I couldn't decide where to publish this photo on Riga blog or on Vilnius Photos blog.
Zirņu sala (Pea Island) is located in Salaspils county, next to Riga Hydroelectric Power Plant and Darzini area.
It is infamous construction site of a little town, which has started in late 2000s, but never been finished.
Today it is an uninhabited zone with illuminated streets and even some built houses just next to Riga's border.
Photo of ghost town was taken by guest photographer Viktores.
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.
