4.6
#2 of 30 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.
