I got to visit Latvia for EuroPride 2015. Riga’s winding cobblestone streets in Old Town make it look like something straight out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. The weather is perfect in a mild-sunny-warm kind of way. I woke up early on a Sunday morning to take a breath from all my Pride travels to experience the morning calm of Riga. I found gorgeous gothic churches and unique architecture that has expanded each century with a heavy influence by the many countries that have occupied Latvia. Independent since 1991, modern Riga is green, lush and full of interesting picturesque scenes.  Here are some of my favorite photos from a Sunday morning stroll.
