    This film features detailed footage in and around the city centre of Riga, the capital city of Latvia, which is a Baltic Sea state located in Eastern Europe.

    The footage is all shot during daytime and was filmed over three different days on walks around the City Centre and at visitor attractions in and around the city centre.

    Riga is the largest city of the Baltic states and home to more than one third of Latvia's population.

    The city is an important seaport and a major industrial, commercial, cultural and financial centre of the Baltic Sea region.

    The city lies on the Gulf of Riga, at the mouth of the Daugava River.
