Fish pavilion

There are five pavilions at the Central market, the fish pavilion being the most old-fashioned one. In the near future it will also experience renovation works.

Central market

Riga Central market is a popular tourist sight. However, soon the market will experience renovation and might lose its exotic and vintage character. Some of the stalls have been already demolished, more destruction and renovation to follow in the next months. Most photos represented here are from the manufactured goods market - one of the most bizarre areas in the Central market.

A view from above

Usually panoramic photos of Riga are taken from well-known spots, such as St.Peter tower or hotel Latvia, so I tried to find some alternatives. The first one is from the Rigas modes building, the second - national library.
