My quality website about Latvia

Lately, if mass media happens to mention Latvia, this is done with "tragic voice" as if we are turning into economical black hole and there is no future for this land. In reality it is far from that. While we were struck by the severity of formerly unseen economical crisis in this winter, now we are on a firm path of deep administrative and economical reforms and are sure that this country will come out of crisis stronger and finally - self-confident.

Latvia is not some grey and boring spot. It is still undiscovered land (for tourist hordes) with many beautiful and interesting things and with hard working people who often do great things.

To show it I have made a Website about landmarks in Latvia - 100% self-made. Address of this Website is:

www.ambermarks.com

Some pics from this Website:

1. Kuldiga town - unique town uniting medieval street network and architecture from 18th - 19th century:


2. Bridge in Kuldiga town:


3. Springtime near medieval Landze church:


4. View from Ververi precipice on Daugava River, Eastern Latvia near the border with Belarus.

5. Ungurmuiza manor - unique wooden Barocco palace with frescoes, early 18th century.


6. Walk in Mezotne Park, one of >700 historical rural parks in Latvia:


7. Velena church, nice 19th century brick Neogothics:


8. Centre of Riga from St Peter's church:


9. Birini palace:


10. Typical tenement house in Riga:


11. Bridges in Riga, night, illumination at 90th anniversary of republic of Latvia:


12. Mersrags cape in western Latvia:


13. Rundale palace, our "Versailles":


14. View from Turaida castle, east from Riga:


15. Streetscape in Daugavpils, easterm Latvia:


Enjoy it!

Nice pictures, but with a thread name like this one (''My quality website about Latvia''), people will think this is a spam thread and not look at it at all. That's just what I'm thinking.
