Like any great European city, Riga, Latvia’s capital, straddles the banks of the northern portion of Riga’s Daugava River before it empties out into the Baltic Sea via the Gulf of Riga. These photos were taken on a recent trip to Riga, Latvia.
My friends and I decided to take an overnight Tallink ferry from Riga to Stockholm, Sweden. As the ship departed Riga’s Passenger Terminal in the late afternoon, we watched the sun set from the upper deck of our ship, the M/S Romantika, as it slowly worked its way out into the massive open Baltic Sea.
