Summer day in Bastejkalna Park

Bastejkalns or Bastion Hill in English is a nice and quiet park in the very center of Riga. This park is named after the Bastion Hill (Bastejkalns) that is situated inside it. It is a beautiful park to visit and walk around. There are many lovely little bridges, flower beds, and benches to sit on. There is also a canal going across it, which makes for a perfect relaxing walk next to the water. Moreover, it is possible to rent a small boat and have a boat ride across the canal here. Some of the things to see in the park include a bridge with hundreds of locks placed there by lovers to pledge their attachment to each other and a memorial to the victims killed by Soviet Troops in 1991
