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.

  • This is an incredibly nice park to stroll through on an autumn day or any other day. The canal is beautiful. There are plenty of trees, flowers, and park benches to relax on.

  • 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!
  • Such a beautiful linear park in the heart of the city. I recommend taking the canal boat ride, it is a relaxing way to get another perspective on this beautiful city.
  • Stunning little park with a ‘love’ bridge of locks, boat rides, green area, a stream, flowers and the whole full monty for parks. Love it here…
  • Very nicely designed park with small playground. Is well suited to make a nice break or the like.
  • 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.
