A tourist guide to Latvia’s capital city, written by Rīga Vice Mayor Andris Ārgalis and available in nine languages, has been released by the publishing house Nacionālais apgāds.
“In writing this book,” Ārgalis said in a May 1 press release announcing release of Rīga, “I wanted to draw the attention of Rīga residents and city guests to the interesting details of Rīga’s splendid buildings—towers, attics, facades, cornices, ornaments, balconies, Rīga’s lions and angels.”
Among the approximately 40 areas of the city examined in the book are the Dome Square, St. Peter’s Church, the Esplanade, and several parks and boulevards.
The book is available in Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Latvian, Russian, Spanish and Swedish.
Andris Ārgallis’ book on Rīga has been published in nine languages.
