Skyline from south



Riga's skyline from Southern bridge. Riga hasn't one compact cluster of highrises but have quite many of them scattered around. In total, Riga has about 180 highrises but that number includes all buildings which are at least 12 floors high - most of them are Soviet time apartment commieblocks.

  1. Great picture! The building on the right looks a lot like one of Stalin's skyscrapers in Moscow... I'm guessing it was built back in his time along with all the commieblocks? And also, I like your blog, you've taken some really nice photos :)

  2. Thanks!
    Yes, that building is Stalinist skyscraper in Riga, built in 50ies. Here a closer look: http://www.photoriga.com/2010/12/stalinism-heritage.html
