Take a walk through the labyrint of cobble-stoned streets and you will probably feel that you have made a jorney back in time. Gothic churches and ancient buildings remind you of the Middle Ages. This words are about Old Riga (Vecriga) - the historical part of my city.
Riga is called as small Paris because films directors from Russia often film Paris scenes in the Old Riga's streets. Tha last film what russians still film here is "The red oratory". This mini serial is about WW 2, about french spies.
There are many concerts anf festivals in Riga during the summer season. Enjoy!
The summer is the best time for visiting Riga. There are many festivals, concerts and shows in summertime. In the picture is the Europeade festival. There were folklore collectives from all European countries. The friendship between Europeans: Spanish girls with Czech boys.
