Latvia’s Tallest Building: The KGB HQ

Latvian's say that the Corner House, an old and worn building just outside old town Riga, is that it is so tall that one can see Siberia from there. It’s sarcasm of course, for during the Soviet occupation of Latvia, the Corner House was in famous for being KGB’s headquarters in Latvia and a one-way ticket to frozen hells of Siberia.
