Architecture of Riga | Part II

Posted on 19th March 2013 in architecture, wandering

Previously I’ve explored Part I of the architecture in Riga. In this part, I further explored the Ghetto, and some more of downtown Riga. The bridge you see is the main bridge of the city. I found it a beautiful bridge, and had to bike over it a few times on journeys. Happy memories for me there in Riga, I hope one day to return again.

I was going back to my place late one night as the sun set, and was heading over the bridge and caught the moon raising up between the towers in the town. The towers actually belong to the Riga Castle.

Just after those photographs are a wall that made me laugh every time I walked by it (multiple times a day). Most of the wall was perfect and arranged beautifully, then it came along these sections and it all just went to shit! Perhaps it was a new genious wall maker man who took over and did the abstract wall? Perhaps they got into the bottle? Perhaps they were angry at their wife? 🙂
