hkskyline's 2008 - RIGA, LATVIA #3

84. St. Peter Church is quite a landmark in the old town, so we thought there must be a way to get to the top.





86. The ravages of war ...





88. It got quite windy up at the top. Braving the cold, we snapped as much as we could in the small but cozy observation deck. I'm guessing the big round buildings is the market that another forumer mentioned about in my earlier photo post?



89. I believe there's an observation deck within that communist-style skyscraper?















96. Good thing skyscrapers are abit further away.

















104. This is an interesting shot. The 3 key structures seem to line up in height. Wonder if they planned that on purpose?





















114. With the cloudier weather, I had to resort to more rooftop shots.









118. A modernization! Believe this is a mall ... I was in it a few times looking for something and to get groceries.



119. As the lighting dimmed and some sunshine peaked out, the river reflected quite nicely on the bridge.













Mission accomplished!

Excellent viewpoint shots of Latvia there, it looks like a lovely city all round with all those small cobbled streets and wonderful facades .
