Rīga is the capital city of Latvia founded in 1201 by Bishop Al­bert fol­low­ing the Cru­sades, but the his­tory of Rīga goes back to the 2nd cen­tury as ini­tial set­tlers moved to the area. Today Rīga has de­vel­oped into the key fi­nan­cial and trade cen­tre of the Baltics. It is the cul­tural and po­lit­i­cal cen­tre of Latvia, home to more than a third of the coun­try’s pop­u­la­tion and the main dri­ving force of the Lat­vian econ­omy.

Enjoy the view of Rīga from the Latvian Television building in island Zaķusala on Live Broadcast.
