  • In the 17th century Swedish King Gustav II Adolf broke camp here for his troops, mezaparks called Royal forest, and its current name, which in translation from Latvian language means forest park, it was only in the year 1923. The first mention of the inhabitants of this area belong to the 14th century, when there were small estates, peasant and fishing settlements, supplied with food. For residents of Riga shores of Lake Kisezers already at that time were a favorite summer destination.

  • We went to the Town Hall square with the bonganneen Guide to the US public transportation tour in Mežaparks. Aleksanders presented the region mostly fit the architecture brings a nice touch to the already rich and varied architecture of Riga. There is also a church of Riga's public and private project promoters: Gustav II Adolf's Church.
