  • Interesting installation, though way more interesting story behind foundation of Riga. Worth reading.  more »
  • I wouldn't go out of my way to see this, but if you're in the area and walking towards Riga Palace, might just take a quick look. It includes a placard outlining how Riga came to being, etc.  more »

  • I love traditional folklore and this guy is that. A giant that helped people cross the river. I read online that locals leave flowers at the statue before a journey but I didn't see any flowers. Of course that doesn't meant it doesn't happen it just means I didn't see any flowers. Anyway, neat folklore and easy to get to.
  • A nice and quiet place to sit and relax or have a walk. Nice view especially sunset's
