Frozen Riga

Meteorologists announced that Siberian cold will reach portions of western and northern mainland Europe, especially from mid-winter on. Much of the United Kingdom, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, Germany, and the Baltic states are expected to have below-average temperatures this season.

Latvia’s capital, Riga, stands out with its surprising beauty!
