Large and well-kept parks, romantic squares, beautiful gardens - Riga is known for being a green and blooming city. Already since the 18th century, Rigans have taken great interest in the art of gardening, creating lush public parks and picturesque squares; the oldest Riga parks are located in the downtown. Unhurried walks, colourful flowerbeds, leisurely sitting in benches or lawns in a park, bird songs and leaves rustling in the wind - this is Riga where city meets Nature.
