Pilsetas kanals, Riga

4.6
#2 of 24 in Nature in Latvia
Flowing through parks and city sights, Pilsetas kanals used to serve as a barrier between the town and potential enemies in medieval times. Today, you can take a walk around this scenic area or opt for a boat tour that covers the city's numerous highlights. 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.

  • The Pilsetas channel a piece outside the historic center of Riga on both sides of the peace monument is located in the middle of Bastejkalna Park. From the freedom monument from one is walking in less than a minute here. We are before HI several times during our stay and enjoyed the winter rest in the almost deserted Park for a relaxing stroll along the Canal. On our way we found numerous monuments and fountains, we like to have looked at us. Conclusion: Even in the winter that is worth seeing.

Where to stay in Riga

As tourism surges in Riga, accommodation options and variety have grown too. The Baltic capital has quality lodging for every budget, from centrally located and affordable hostels, to private apartments and hotel rooms, to chic main-street hotels. The Old Town, a World Heritage Site, sits at the center of it all, so consider staying here if you want to be in the thick of things. For lower prices, look slightly outside of the city's core but within walking distance. For somewhere a little quieter, check out neighborhoods like Agenskalns and Tornakalns, which are less touristy, well-preserved districts.
