Rīga Central market, Latvia.


5 zeppelin hangars, lot's of stuff both inside and out over an area of 14 ha
(the Central market actually takes up just 72 000 sq.m of those - the rest is Industrial goods market, Night market and Spīķeri)


It also includes a chapel for the staff, 2 ha of underground technical facilities and a railway station on the roof (no longer in use since bombings of WWII destroyed the elevated railway)

When completed in 1930 it was the largest and most modern market in Europe.

The waterfront is rather ugly though. But thankfully the new riverside promenade next to the market was finished last year and the canalside (picture 1) is going to be reconstructed in the coming years.

Pictures from photoriga.com, delfi.lv and rct.lv

Why do people show market halls and street markets in here, when the title reads Market Squares? It doesn't really make sense. Stick to the topic or else open a general thread about markets somewhere.

Lets pull this thread back from the dead.

Went to see the annual Lightshow @ Grand Place in Brussels this weekend. Enjoy.



Sorry, youtube shut the sound of, the music was very fitting.
