Oskars Kalpaks Bridge

  O. Kalpaka iela     21 Mar 2019
This iconic metal bridge, whose design was supposedly based on a sketch by Gustave Eiffel, was opened in 1906. The bridge has been damaged a number of times over the years, most recently in 2006 when a tanker smacked into it. The technical marvel is still in operation to this day and opens up at scheduled times throughout the day and night to allow ships to pass.
