Postcard from Riga Latvia

A  quick glimpse of Riga the lively capital city of Latvia today. A port city located just 20 km from the sandy beaches of the Baltic coast within easy reach of those needing to relax after a heavy night out.

There will be plenty to explore in the city itself however over the next few days, around a dozen churches, attractive parks, bustling market places, museums  and plenty of coffee shops for refuelling along the way.

This is the National Opera House, a building the local people are extremely proud of. It has received an extensive makeover since the Soviets departed and now hosts pop concerts as well as the more traditional opera and classical performances, a cultural hub for the city.
