A lovely park to take a leisurely stroll through the city. You can take a canal cruise if you wish and enjoy the city view from the canal.

Walking through the fine parks in central Riga is highly recommended. Vermanes is probably the smallest of them while the Esplanade park on the other side of Brivibas boulevard hosts some very important buildings.

The garden is not so far from center and quite nice to walk around in. If you come at the right time it's possible to see beavers as well.

Take a stroll along the canal, stop and enjoy the garden. Watch the boats float passed, maybe take a boat trip, look out for random sculture. It's a grand place to sit and eat your lunch!

Everything is beautiful. I particularly loved the tram ride to the central market. Whatever you do you’ll enjoy it. Follow your nose and go with the flow.
