Pilsetas kanals, Riga

4.5
#2 of 10 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.

    It's not inevitable but, why not do it? cost a bit overblown, 18 euros per person, but I mean, you can't be on vacation now and to look for the subtle. Across the channel, and then flows into the Dougouva. You can see how carefully the Latvians hold their cose...si can also see the cafes where maybe then wipe walk to take something ... I mean I would also recommend if there is to be expected, the tour of the canals of Amsterdam, of course

    Pleasure boats go around the ring Canal Daugava-channel. The walk is worth it. There are scenic views, including Riga panorama from the river.

    It is a delight to wander an hour and relax in this beautiful park with canals and water jets.

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.
