Good night!

3 days ago I posted about the Central Market of Riga. In two of the photos from that article, you could see a huge building in the background. That building is the Latvian Academy of Sciences and it's one of those landmarks very useful for tourists, since it's visible from a great distance.

No GPS? No worries! Whenever you feel like you are getting lost, while visiting Riga... just look around and search for this tower.

The building architecture is very interesting and unique... It could easily be mistaken for a church. Just take a good look at the front of the building!

Impressive, isn't it?

There's an observation deck at the top, which I haven't visited. Unfortunately, it was closed due to a holiday season. It was the end of June and - just like we Portuguese - the Latvians and Lithuanians were enjoying the St. John Day. I had a wonderful time there... so missing out on the observation deck didn't bother me a bit! 🙃


The surrounding area was a residential zone and, other than the nearby market, there's not much to do around here. No restaurants, no cafés, only a few public parks to relax and enjoy the views.

These students have a real cool place to study, in my opinion. I wonder if that plays a factor in their learning curve....?

What do you think, are students more or less motivated to take a course in a cool building like this? Or do you think it's irrelevant?

Hmm it would work for the students who appreciated that kind of thing, but the average kid...NOPe, they wouldn't even see the beauty in it " This old ass building ughh" LOL

It is a great looking tower indeed though. That is the main thing I am gonna take pics of when I travel around Europe, the buildings:)

Gladly, this building is not for children. This is an institute where the most important scientists of Latvia conduct their researches.

I don't think these students were kids, @wolfhart. After all, they are Latvia's most important scientists! 😊

Hahaha
If there in there 20’s there kids to me.
We don’t realize how important education is until later. At least I didn’t.
I studied hard and played even harder.
