Latvia: Latvian Academy of Sciences

Today I got a postcard from Latvia.

It shows the Latvian Academy of Sciences in Riga. The Latvian Academy of Sciences was founded in 1946 when Latvia was a part of the Soviet Union. Its building was constructed between 1953 and 1956 as Latvia's first skyscraper. Today the foremost scientists of the country are members of the academy.
