Riga Skyline from the Island Bridge

Riga Skyline from the Island Bridge

The River Daugava and Riga skyline from about halfway across the north span of the Island Bridge (Salu tilts).

The broad tower and spire of Riga’s Dom Cathedral on the left, and the graceful wedding cake of St Peter’s, centre. Immediately to its left is the copper spire of the Cathedral Basilica of St James. On the right is the white tower and copper spire of St John’s. In the foreground are the arches of the Central Market (Centrāltirgus), Europe’s largest market.

The ugly grey skyscraper is the building that houses the Ministry of Agriculture on the east bank of the Daugava near the Vanšu Bridge.
