Trip Planner: Europe / Latvia / Riga Region / Riga / Bastejkalna 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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Bastejkalna Park by using our Riga trip itinerary planner.

Natural and relaxing. You can take canal boat from this park. The park is located in a prime spot. The freedom monument is just nearby. All other tourist attractions are in 10 mins distance. It's also close to Jacobs barracks and Powder tower. Highly recommended!
Beatiful Park. It is the perfect place to enjoy a morning walk on a sunny weather. The canal with the bridges, the fountain, the gardens and the statues create a nice environment to chill and feel nice, away from the stress of the day.
