Find a picnic spot at one of the gardens alongside the channel and feed your crumbs to the ducks. For more adventure, try renting a kayak and paddling along the river, passing under its many bridges to observe the city from a different perspective.

  • A further small green oasis in this beautiful city. If you want from the cobblestones down times can walk here wonderfully. Unfortunately, there was still no boat trips in the April 2017. The Kronvalda Park joins at the northern end, which is located left of the Art Nouveau district. You can there continuously to walk and still in between the one or the other monument and see the remains of the bastion.

  • אפשר להתחיל בטיול קצר מבית האופרה לעבור דרך האנדרטה ולהגיע לגבעה. להשקיף על הבתים סביב. הפארק נקי ומטופח. היחידים שזורקים את הזבל אלו העורבים.. לא התנהגות יפה של העורבים.. .  more »
  • The former fortification ditch expanded and got city Canal. Venice is not created, but the landscape refreshed. Yes and go on a boat is now possible.
