"Coal" Riga Region Off The Beaten Path Tip by RB_Oakes

Riga Region Off The Beaten Path: 45 reviews and 37 photos

  Coal piles of Riga
by RB_Oakes

I took the ferry to Stockholm. On the way out of Riga there are two things I found quite interesting. One were the spits at the edge of the Baltic Sea where families and couples waved us goodbye. The other was the massive coal piles with brightly coloured cranes. Admittedly, the colours lost a little (ok, a lot) in the translation from reality to this photograph, but the contrast of all these bright colours was amazing. Watch for it when entering/exiting Riga by ferry.
