Everyone likes a good penis, right? (well, except for lesbians, granted.) Riga people surely do, which is why I was shown the famous penis sculpture in the park.
OK, joking aside, something truly intriguing is an Art nouveau building built by Russians shortly after Russians’ fleets tried to attack Japan and were sunken. The ornaments on the façade feature shrieking people, moaning lions, skulls, and heads with cloths tying around them to prevent them from dropping their jaws — since they are dead. Quite a sight.
