Out-Of-Riga: View from Gesundaberget mountain

Just returned from trip to Sweden. I experienced some of the once-in-a-lifetime views from Gesundaberget mountain in central Sweden. After one of periodical rain showers, this one went right over the mountain, the sun started to shine from behind and a rainbow appeared. Had never seen a full rainbow from above before. Too bad my main memory card died at the last day of the trip so I can't show you photos where rainbow was even closer, right behind the mountain where I'm standing.

The lake below is Siljan - sixt largest lake in Sweden, an enormous giant which total area (here you see small part of it) is a bit larger than Riga city - 354 sq. kilometres.

Dzegužkalna park

Dzegužkalns park in my mind is the most interesting park in Riga because it is the only one which is located on a hill and it offers many interesting landscapes as well as views over Riga rooftops to city skylines. As you see in first photo - the hill and the park is cut through in 2 parts by Buļļu street.
