Latvijas Pasts releases special envelope to mark 100th anniversary of Railway Bridge over Daugava

The print run of the new envelope is 1,000. The special envelope and the cancellation have been designed by artist Ģirts Grīva.
The Railway Bridge over the Daugava River is situated in Riga and is supported by 10 piers, of which eight are in the water. Construction of the bridge began in 1909 and lasted five years. The Railway Bridge over the Daugava River was one of the first double-track railway bridges in the Russian Empire. Today, the railway bridge in Riga is particularly noticeable at night time when it is lit up in blue. During the national holidays the lighting is blue and white, as these are the colors of the flag of Riga.
