I was born and raised in Latvia, in the city of Salaspils, which is known for:
At this place, the place of the first settlement of ancient people in the Baltics was discovered.
Germans, Poles, Swedes and Russians were occupiers here.
Salaspils is older than Riga!
During WWII, there was a Nazi concentration camp here.
In Soviet times, an experimental nuclear reactor worked here.
And now I live here.
There is also a very beautiful botanical garden and a railway station.
