    Thumbs up Art Nouveau in Riga




    [youtube]23ihqRf6sBI[/youtube]
    I found this video about Art Nouveau-architecture in Riga (may be worth watching).
    And I have found some pictures on Wikimedia as well. If anyone knows a better site, tell me.

    Ok a short video of a folk fest in Kuldiga. The fest has the topic to remember our old culture and traditions and to show the times of our Baltic middle ages with middle ages music and knights who are fighting!! It take place in many places in Latvia! We have no professionals in Kuldiga but it is funny to watch First a little music on the street and then a knight fight with a deadly end for one of them loool ^_^
    The crazy guy who comes at minute 2:30 is a friend of my cousin and a small jerk --- you can see why He plays instruments too. But the fest is not dead serious there is always much fun with it and no one of Kuldiga stays dry at the fest days

    I have a relative myself who's into the reenacting business, he's only a teen, but he's hand-crafted his own full chain mail armour and pretty much beat all his opponents on the international event held at Visegrd.

    Good stuff, keep posting about your beautiful country.
