Postcard from Latvia!

Today I got a nice postcard from Latvia! The postcard shows an illustration of a narrow street in Vecrīga. Vecrīga was the original area of Riga, the country's capital city. It is bounded by the original city limits and was previously walled. It has many beautiful narrow streets such as the one seen on the card and has many historic churches.  Today, vehicular traffic is tightly controlled in the streets. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is inscribed as the Historic Centre of Riga. Thanks Zane!
