Latvian National Opera - Photo by Shawn M. Kent

The Latvian National Opera building overlooks a lovely park with statues, fountains and expansive green spaces. The neo-classical architectural building makes a beautiful photo location with tall columns and picturesque surroundings. Opening in 1923, the Opera puts on roughly 6 operatic productions per year and other symphony and chamber music events. Opera is very popular in Latvia, and famed German composer Richard Wagner once was an artist in residence here. (Riga, Latvia)
