  • We went to the Town Hall square with the bonganneen Guide to the US public transportation tour in Mežaparks. Aleksanders presented the region mostly fit the architecture brings a nice touch to the already rich and varied architecture of Riga. There is also a church of Riga's public and private project promoters: Gustav II Adolf's Church.
