Yeah, it was made to resemble a wave

Alrighty then - Rīga central station it is:


When the new building was built. Note the old, prewar station building still on the right and a tram line in the front.


When the old station building and tram line got demolished.


When the analog clock was replaced with a digital one.


After reconstruction. The clock tower was demolished and built from scratch


View from the platforms. Nothing has changed here.

I love it! Specially with the Latvian Academy of Sciences behind. Good to hear that they restored the analog clock. The digital one was really a creepy idea.

That one could be very nice if it was restored. Especially the surrounding space.

The last building is "Bērnu pasaule" (Kids world) - a shopping center that originally was devoted only for kids products - kids clothes, toys, etc.



After reconstruction

Nowadays it's first floor has a Rimi supermarket, a bakery, a restaurant. And the rest is low-end stores - second hand clothes and stuff. Barely anything for children. That function was probably taken away by a new kids superstore "Lāčuks" just few hundred meters away.
