Culture palace "Ziemeļblāzma" | Kultūras pils "Ziemeļblāzma"



I still haven't presented you probably the restoration number 1 of previous years in Riga. This is culture palace "Ziemeļblāzma" ("Northern Lights"), an Art Nouveau architectural gem from 1913, located in Vecmīlgrāvis district. The weirdest fact about this impressive building is that it's architect officially is unknown (but some sources indicates the drawings could have been made by Augusts Dombrovskis who financed the construction, with the help of certified architect Gustavs Šķilters). It's recent renovation costed around 13 mio EUR and now it has reborn as a notorious culture centre for north-eastern area of Riga. In the lowest photo you can see how the place looked few years ago.
