I guess if you are not Russian or from Scandinavia, you might never come on the stupid idea to visit Riga in the winter. However, when I made my registration at the Latvia University, I know I had to go to Riga twice a year. But actually I cannot complain, because the temperatures are very cozy for January. My colleges, which started last year, told me that they had -25°C. So I’m luck, cause it is only -10°C.
The first two days were not very nice. The sky was cloudy and that covered the city in gray. Hence, I the photos in day light are boring, but Riga at night has its own charm. I stray around the city, from the train station to the central market and finally to the creepy Moscow district.
