The new edition of CityPaper, one of the only European publications that predicted that Latvia would win the Eurovision Song Contest last year, has tipped Russia as winner this year and put Estonia on the second place.
The Baltic-based magazine said “Sweden is bringing by far the worst song to this year's contest in Riga”, and it also singled out the British entry for harsh criticism.
The 12-year-old CityPaper, a news magazine and tourist guide, is the largest publication of its kind in the Baltic region. It prints between 25,000 and 40,000 copies every two months, and has over 80,000 readers, including in all three Baltic countries and outside the Baltics.
Next week we will give away a number of copies of the CityPaper Eurovision edition to our members.
