Animation movies from the UBC Smart Cities Commission

UBC Safe Cities Commission has produced three short animation movies about safety at home. As the Union of the Baltic Cities includes around 100 cities from the Baltic Sea Region, these animation movies were made without an actual word spoken, so that they can be clear for everyone.

The animation movies teach how to ensure your property, so you know who is coming to visit you and that you don’t have to open your door to everyone, and that you don’t need to show off to your friends the valuables you have at your home.

UBC now in Twitter and LinkedIn

In addition to Facebook, UBC is now in social media in both Twitter and LinkedIn.

On Twitter you can find us as @UBC_BSR. UBC hashtags are #UBC_BSR and #UnionoftheBalticCities.

The former LinkedIn pages of UBC Sustainable Cities Commission have been updated into Union of the Baltic Cities (UBC) pages. The new UBC pages will in the future feature updates from all seven UBC commissions, including Sustainable Cities Commission.

Christmas Fairs and Advent Concerts

Christmas fairs - a delight to both children and adults: decorated Christmas trees,  scent of mulled wine, roasted almonds, Christmas tea and coffee; gingerbread men and houses. Peaceful Christmas time, Advent concerts everywhere in the city and the inimitable care-free bustling atmosphere of Christmas fairs. Guests and citizens of Riga join at the New Year Eve celebrations and fireworks at the Freedom Monument.


Riga City Festival

The City Festival is a strong tradition since 2001, the 800th anniversary of Riga.

At end-August Riga turns into a major location for festivities, where visitors of the city, the young and the old, enjoy a number of exciting events: concerts, workshops, street fairs, theatre plays, art performances, and even a gourmet festival.
Most of the events take place along the 11th November Embankment, in Old Town and central parks, with a wide range of events also held all over the city.
