Two 14 to 16 meters tall and around 35 years old Christmas trees will be installed in City Hall Square and Dome Square ahead of the upcoming winter holidays, Riga City Council representative Aira Smelde told LETA.

Officials of the city council visited Tireli forestry on Thursday to pick Christmas trees for Riga’s main squares.

Traditionally, Christmas trees are installed in Riga’s squares ahead of the first Advent Sunday. At the end of the Riga officials’ trip to Tireli, 40 new fir trees were planted to replace the cut ones.
