In 25 August 2018, the CAPITAL R blog was published. A new, hopefully long-lasting independent web gazette, writing about life in Riga, Latvia, in English.

For a decade before the blog, working in tourism sector and creative industries, we realized - Riga is missing an alternative media channel in English, telling stories of our city in an honest, creative and responsible way. A channel that paints a true and sometimes unmerciful picture of Riga and its contemporary life for the whole world to understand and appreciate.

CAPITAL R will be trying to follow similar steps of 5-minute core information shared for those, who want to understand Riga better and get more inspiration, yet spend optimal time per text when on road or drinking their morning coffee. We will sport some more adventurous and creative multimedia posts as well as commission work, yet there will be carefully and unmercifully selected partners.
If you are interested in business PARTNERSHIP with CAPITAL R, write us to the email listed below.
Follow us on Facebook or Instagram, or Youtube where our content will drop now and then. We definitely invite you to share us through your foreign groups / channels / friend lists / students working or studying in Latvia, so every shorter-term visitor or resident can enjoy every text from CAPITAL R and learn more about Riga by trying to understand its character. And, who knows, one day they will visit us the last time to never leave.

Capitally yours,
