Sveriges Ambassad


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
