Some people say it is a silly and childish tradition. Me - I think it is a little bit charming. But what it's all about - after getting married, people lock a... lock on Riga's bridges. This one is totally full already so they switched to two other ones. We were wondering how are the statics of the construction. ;)
Riga's authorities joke that they cannot detach the locks, because people believe that as long as the lock is on the bridge, the marriage will survive.
