Yellow Dragon

A real idea of railway in Latvia started to be active in 1853, but the first working magistral was opened in 1961 (Riga-Dinaburg). In the period up to WWI railway network in Latvia’s territory grew to 1941 km.

The bridge on this photo is the Railway Bridge over river Daugava in Riga – historically the first iron bridge in Latvia (over 1 km long, built in 1971-1972). An object partly visible in background is Riga Radio and TV Tower, the tallest structure (368.5 m) in the Baltic countries and the third tallest tower in Europe. It was built between 1979-1986. For more information you can visit its official homepage.
