RIGA, LATVIA ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ป: SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY

1905 Bloody Sunday Monument The events of Bloody Sunday in St. Petersburg on January 9, 1905, when hundreds of peaceful protestors were slaughtered by their tsar, inspired Latvians to show their solidarity with the workers of the Russian capital by staging a strike during which meetings were held, songs sung and demands for greater autonomy made. This ominous powder keg was finally lit a few days later on January 13 when peaceful demonstrators met a Russian military force near the River Daugava. Shots were fired and panic ensued. Some demonstrators were killed by bullets and others fell through the ice in the river and drowned. All told, at least 70 perished and another 200 were injured. A decidedly Soviet statue with two proletarians hoisting a flag now approximates the spot where the carnage occurred and the street is also named after the incident โ€“ 13.janvฤra iela. (iyp)

Alexander’s Church (Estonian: Aleksandri Suurkirik) is a church of the Estonian Evangelical Lutheran Church in Narva, Estonia. Narva Church’s original cornerstone was laid in summer 1881. It was congregated after Emperor Alexander II in fall 1883, after his assassination earlier in spring. Alexander ll was the Emperor of Russia, King of Congress Poland and Grand Duke of Finland from 2 March 1855 until his assassination. His most significant reform as emperor was emancipation of Russia’s serfs in 1861, for which he is known as Alexander the Liberator. The church was consecrated on 9 June 1884. It was given cathedral status on 19 September 2000. (notes from wiki)
I find old wooden buildings in old Soviet republics so striking because it makes you think in awe of how they survived wars and occupations. Or did they? Maybe they came to be after those times. But, it doesnโ€™t look like it.
Panoramic view. Narva is a quiet town. There are many opportunities to get โ€˜people-lessโ€™ shots.
