Bastejkalns, Riga's Canalside Park



Riga, Latvia

A beautiful spot for a walk or a picnic, right in the centre of Riga. We really enjoyed exploring Bastejkalns Park, which runs along both sides of the canal and features a number of statues and sculptures, amid beautiful flowers and trees. On hot days, the shaded benches were perfect for getting out of the sun, and there were several ice-cream carts if refreshments were needed.

Beautiful place! It is really cool to sit and relax under those trees. And the lovely flowers add more beauty to the view.

The photos are beautiful! The angle you've shot from make it seem like I'm there, especially the bridge photo!

A nice place. But I have to say I find that statue a bit creepy though....

I wonder why we don't create spaces like that near our canals?
