Talsi is known as the town of nine hills and two lakes and is one of most beautiful and calm towns in Northwest Latvia, some 120 km from Riga. It has a lot of old wooden houses, small quiet streets, shabby shops and a few Soviet time symbols, such as the "Kursa" sign for the supermarket, or even older signs - in the second photo from the bottom one can spot a shop ad from Tsar times covered with another sign of "Talsi consumer society" from 1920s or 1930s.
