The city of Riga (1989 pop. 915,000), is the capital of Latvia on the Daugava River near its entry into the Gulf of Riga. It is a major Baltic port, rail junction, military base, and leading industrial center. Among its manufacturing industries are machines, ships, and diesel engines. Riga became (1201) the seat of the Livonian Brothers of the Sword, a German military order dedicated to Christianizing the Baltic region. Riga joined the Hanseatic League in 1282. After the Livonian Order was dissolved (1561) the city passed to Poland (1581), Sweden (1621), and Russia (1721). It became the capital of independent Latvia in 1920 and was the capital of the Latvian SSR (1940-91) while the country was forcibly annexed by the USSR. During World War II Riga was occupied (1941-44) by Germany.
