Esplanade 2014


The open office of the foundation ‘Riga 2014’ will function in the square in front of the monument of Rainis, in the heart of the Esplanade park, which will offer news of Riga as the European Capital of Culture and possibility to observe and participate in diverse cultural activities. This office will be the place where to share your vision of future Riga with the like-minded and maybe make friends, a place to feel at home and enjoy free wi-fi in. We can all become citizens of Riga for a while in 2014! The Ray of Riga shines stronger every day.

Project description:

The Ray of Riga has been kept alive even in the darkest of times. The Esplanade is one of the particularly significant places in Riga spiritual landscape. The older citizens of Riga remember the National Song and Dance festival of the first Independence, while others associate it with the romantic open-air skating and others still – with the sense of unity enjoyed in the annual Poetry Days, which center around the monument of Rainis.
