Why locals love it

Great to go jogging, enjoy the scenery of the city and pass by classical old houses. Fresh, open and quiet it is a nice place to see Riga's old town from across the river.

Why you should visit it

Bale island was used by fishermen before being industrialized in the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s a well preserved haven of fisherman’s architecture, complete with 150-year-old wooden palaces with some classicist and national romantic features.

Special tip
