Long lines of cars formed in and around Sigulda in the Gauja national park, a traditional place to view the fall landscape, though no less spectacular sights were on offer throughout the country. To tie in with the enthusiasm for leaf-watching, a specially themed concert was even laid on.
Social media was flooded with images of the riot of color happening in forests, parks and gardens, with many members of the foreign diplomatic corps clearly taking advantage of the opportunity to get out of Rīga and see a bit more of the country, for example UK ambassador Keith Shannon.
According to meteorologists, the fine weather is set to continue for a few more days, so make the most of them, get outside and take in the trees!
