Official opening of European BEST Engineering Competition Final 2014.
Europe's biggest engineering competition kicked off today at Riga Technical University, Latvia.
Opening ceremony started in style, as the sounds of Latvian national anthem filled the faculty's central hall.
Then, it was time for welcoming words by some remarkable people, such as university rector, UNESCO and BEST representatives and organisers.
A pleasant musical break helped to keep things lively and interesting.
Love seemed to be in the air as people were looking sharp and happy ...
... and everyone was eager to take photos in front of the interview area.
As for any good ceremony, it all ended with an official group photo. All we can really say is - good job, photographers!
