EYEWITNESS: RIGA ON THE EVE OF THE VOTE

As Latvians today go to the vote, CtB takes a look back at one of its favourite Baltic capitals! We captured the last days of Riga’s Indian summer just as the city was preparing for Latvia’s parliamentary elections. With the situation in Ukraine far from de-escalating, and large portions of Latvia’s own sizeable Russian minority unhappy about their own status quo, this small Baltic country is the place on which the eyes of the world are set. Enjoy our images of Riga’s old town, the Latvian Ethnographic museum, as well as the nearby Kisezers lake.
