98. First time in this thread - Bolderāja district. Bolderāja is a very distant part of Riga. Located in the northern part of the city about 15 km from centre, it is like a completely separate town, because there is a vast unurban area (Spilves meadows) which separates it. It was historically a fisherman's village, and the historical part of it consists of small, low floor wooden houses. Here you see a bit of historical part, Bolderāja catholic church to the left (there is also lutheran church in Bolderāja) and a snap of commieblock area in background.

99. Reval Hotel Latvia - largest hotel in Baltic states with some 600 rooms - fits perfectly to this day concept, because it's both Soviet, both modern time architecture example. Building itself is built in 70ies, but some 10 years ago it was reconstructed and after also low-floor extension with shop arcade built.

I will devote this week mostly to the festival pictures as far as it fits in day concepts. More pictures of this and last year's "Staro Riga" you can find here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=749036&page=2 (and there will be more!)
