UNESCO - Historic Centre of Riga, Latvia

Jolly Christmas time in the Riga's Old Town! The photo shows the House of the Blackheads, erected during the first third of the 14th century for the Brotherhood of Blackheads, a guild for unmarried German merchants in Riga. The structure was bombed to a ruin by the Germans in 1941 and the remains demolished by the Soviets in 1948. The current reconstruction was erected from 1995 to 1999.
A lovely stamp with a marten. Thanks to Ash :)
