From November 17th - 20th in the central part of Riga the festival of light "STARO RIGA" ("Shine, Riga!") were held.The concept of light has been chosen to symbolically celebrate the triumph of light over darkness in the darkest time of the year.
During the four days of the festival Rigans and guests of the city were able to encounter light installations in the streets and parks, view illuminated facades of the buildings, squares and bridges.
Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
