Majori Train Station (10/100)

There is still some terrible Soviet architecture extant in Latvia. Not that we don't have some bad 60's and 70's public buildings in the States, but there are a few buildings here that add an extra dimension to the bad old architecture front. This is the train station in Majori, one of several stops in the seaside town of Jurmala. It's a small one-room station with a cafe off the side. I took this picture and then the ticket-seller woman told me I wasn't allowed to take pictures. Maybe due to some security regulation, but maybe because she didn't want word to get out on just how ugly the Majori train station is.
