Cat hunting by the Daugava river

March 12th, 2009 by Latvia

This is an amazing shot of cat hunting near the Daugava river ir Riga, Latvia.

The moment and composition are so dramatic and funny at the same time – as it truly is always when watching a cat go on a hunt :) I wonder how this all ended?

Btw, check out this page, labākais SEO speciālists Latvijā about SEO services in Latvia.

Intars Busulis is winner of Latvian Eurovision

February 28th, 2009 by Latvia

The winner of Latvian Eurovision is Intars Busulis, a young man on the wave of his fame in Latvia. You can listen to his songs online here.

The finale of Eurovision in Latvia took place in Ventspils, and this evening among ten finalists Intars Busulis won most of the jury and people’s support.

He will sing a song “Sastrēgums” (“Traffic Jam”) – yes, that means a guy singing in Latvian language in the middle of Russia, on scene in Moscow. How cool is that?

UPDATE: it turns out, that he won’t be singing in Latvian – instead they will perform the russian version of this song. You can hear it here: Intars Busulis – “Пробка”

easyJet left Latvia

February 25th, 2009 by Latvia

Since couple months easyJet is no longer flying to Riga, Latvia. Perhaps the airline will resume flights to Riga when the travel season begins somewhere in spring.

At the moment only low budget airline flying from Europe to Riga is Ryanair, they continue to develop new routes from Riga. The latest are to Germany and more cities in United Kingdom.

Winter snow in Riga

February 25th, 2009 by Latvia

This winter we get a lot of snow, time by time it gets warmer, but overall this winter is a cold one with often snow falling all night.

This is a typical day in Riga, view from Hotel Reval Latvia on park “Esplanāde” with orthodox church.

This week they say weather will get warmer and things will start to melt. But if you want to plan your visit and hate snow, wait until end of March!

Exclusive cars in Latvia

February 25th, 2009 by Latvia

These days you can see a lot of exclusive cars on streets of Riga and Latvia. Porsche 911, Porsche Cayenne, Brabus, Bentley, Hummers, even some Lamborghini driving around our poor country.

Lately there has been a shift in prices on cars in Latvia – they get cheaper, and now it’s the right time to buy used or new cars with big discounts. The auto industry in Latvia is in stagnation, and it will take time to recover.
