An ever-expanding postcard blog

Limbazi

postcards3_2_2_2_2This wonderful card is another from Maija on her trip to Latvia and shows her hometown of Limbazi. From the top left you can see: the folk and art museum, the ‘Monument to the Glorious Dead in liberty fights’, the Baptist church, Juras Street, the Lutheran church and Torna Street. Although now the town has a small population of only 8000, during the Middle Ages, it was second in importance only to Riga in the whole country.
