“A must see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

I love the channel. I love to walk along it any time of the year - so peaceful and refreshing. There are beautiful trees and plants and flowers, I found a white magnolia tree in full bloom this spring. And fountains and bridges and sculptures... And especially I recommend to take a tour by one of the boats by the channel to the river Daugava and back again. It is a nice break from a hectic day.

“Enjoy the Canal and Park-like Setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

This is not just a "canal." Sure, you can take excursion boats along the canal that runs through the city, however, it is really pleasant to walk along the canal, to enjoy the planted areas as well as the beautiful sculptures and trees in a park-like setting. It's also fun to just sit on a bench and watch people and feed the birds your left-over sandwich. There is a bridge in the park whose railing is loaded with locks, some old/some new. Newly marrieds believe that if they place a lock on that bridge, it will provide for a strong and constant marriage.

“Lovely to walk along”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

The canal runs right through the Riga along the edge of the Old Town. There are some lovely parks with various fountains and sculptures. It is so nice to chill out and walk along these paths on the edge of the canal.
