Postcrossing postcard from the Latvian capital, Riga, home to more than one third of the country's population. Seen here is part of the Historic Centre of Riga World Heritage site with Riga Cathedral, built in 1211, Riga Castle, built in 1330, and Daugava River in the background.

Stamp on the left from definitive series municipal coats-of-arms, in this case Staicele near the border with Estonia. Stamp on the right commemorates the 500th anniversary of Cēsis Castle, once the most important castle in the Baltics as official residence for the head of the Livonian Order of crusading knights.
