Radio and TV Tower in 🇱🇻 Riga, Latvia


One of the most recognizable landmarks in the Baltic republic of Latvia is the Riga Radio and TV Tower.  Situated on an island in the Daugava River just upstream from Riga's Old City, the tower stands 368 meters or about 1.2k ft.  It's the tallest tower in the EU, and one of the 15 tallest in the world as of 2019 (using a definition of "tower" which excludes buildings used for living or work space).  Seen via drone in this excellent video by DimiDRONE, the tower was completed in 1989, when Latvia was still part of the Soviet Union.
