Park · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Located in the center of the bustling city, Bastejkalna Park offers greenery as far as the eye can see, set apart by a river with tiny waterfalls and bridges. Take a walk along its flower-lined pathways, rest on one of the benches, or observe swans and ducks in their rituals of courtship and preening. You'll find sculptures and memorial monuments dedicated to fallen fighters in 1991. The bridges at this 150-year-old city garden are filled with padlocks placed there in the name of love--feel free to add your own.

  • One of the nicest places in Riga! The park is not new but seems to be well kept. The park is located in the center of Riga, hence you can find many significant sights nearby.  more »
  • I like this place. Theres a water fountain! This place is a good plae for a first date. Theres a negative thing, there are no restourants but theres MacDonalds.  more »
  • A beautiful peaceful, relaxing green space gateway to the Old Town. Take a boat ride on the Kanal, enjoy coffee, pastries and people watching in a small cafe or simply stroll through the eye catching autumn gardens. Escape from the frenetic tourist rat race and chill out. I recommend you to it.
  • The cutest green park split down the middle by a lazy small river. All the grass and trees are beautifully manicured, with plenty of open space and line of sight to the distant horizon. There are boats and canoes available for rent. The tall trees provide ample shading during the warm summer days. Bring your favorite blanket and picnic basket here for a pleasurable say at the park. Heal your soul!
