Nazis in RigaAs it turned out, there was a foreign film company shooting scenes for a World War 2 film. The company was shooting scenes all around different parts of Riga, even some bits in Moscow District. As our Daily Bike Tours go through it, we were able to see some of the filming in action.

I was a bit cheeky and decided to take some snaps of the “nazis” and the filming process.
