Nice shots there as usual mate. As you say, the architecture is not brilliant but I think only the pyschedelic bit with a bit of yellow, a bit of red etc. - the glass corners and curves are quite attractive actually. The multicolours are the mistake that planners make so often in cities, notably to me in Bristol.

Thanks for the modern pics, as you promised, vecais! I like it, but Riga's best architecture is its classical buildings!
