High-end virtual tour in Old Riga

Riga City Council has prepared high class Website about Old Riga with lots of 360 degree panoramas, moving 3D models of important buildings and endless amount of information.
I would like to invite you to look at this site - but you need QuickTime and Flash as well as good graphical card for you computer:

http://www.riga.lv/media/VecrigaInfo/en.html

Before doing this - ensure that you have some free time! This website is really fascinating.

Remember - this is only small fraction what Riga can offer regarding historical architecture!

This is great! But do they plan to add some of the streets like Elizabet street?

Seems that not. Site would be extended to include more info about museums in Old City. Boulevards, enormous Centrum and other historical areas would not be included.

pitty but the included areas are extremely beautiful as well. When will Riga do the renovation of "Three Brothers"?

Not heard anything about their renovation. But they are charming as they are and construction is in good condition - State Heritage inspection and Museum of Architecture is inside.
