Riga Life


Riga Life can be delightful –

if you just look all about,

see the wondrous architecture

and things of interest as you go by.


Riga Life can be a pleasure –

if you don’t hurry along.

If you take the time to wander

and see what you can find.



Riga Life doesn’t have to be stressful,

as long as you find time for some of its beauty.

Keep your camera always focused,

as you never know what you might see.


Riga Life can offer –

so much to make you smile.

If only you take each day in stride

and find the time to notice.


Riga life isn’t all about dirt and grime,

about teeming streets.

It also offers so much by the riverside,

just to please the eye.


Riga life can take a mind

and bring it alive with imagination,

from the buildings and sights,

to even the clouds that go sailing by.


Riga life has a pace of its own –

from city streets to the market and the canal.

If you just turn about,

you can hear the voice of the city.

If Riga life is taken just right,

it can make you feel like dancing,

like spreading your arms wide

and embracing it all with a smile.


Riga life can give so much for the soul,

it can make you want to sing,

to thrill with each discovery,

it’s not at all bad, not Riga life.


So come on over

and take a look.

Come and see Riga life –

it beats with a pulse of its own.


Riga life ever changing,

ever something new.

As the seasons come and go,

the city is moving along too.

Whether the day is sunny or cloudy,

in rain or shine –

Riga life never pauses,

it’s just waiting for you.
