Riga Watersides

Riga is one of the few European cities which has really wide river flowing through the city's centre - Daugava reaches between 500-800 metres width there. It opens broad scenery and great skyline views of the city from many different locations. I have opened a new photo gallery in my web page www.urbancentre.net : Riga watersides. There I have started to collect my pics of Riga waterfronts&skylines. Some of the pics as a preview here:

Riga's historic skyline is one of the most impressive I have seen. And of course a great riverfront setting which helps to make it look even better.

Beautiful Riga. St. Peter’s Church has one of the most graceful spires in Europe.
