Why locals love it

It is a great place to spend a lovely day with family. The surrounding area of Meža Parks offers plenty of other activities to make a full day outing possible.

Why you should visit it

Riga Zoo, founded in 1912, makes for a perfect alternative to all the architecture, featuring more than 3000 species. Settle down on the shores of the placid Ķīšezers lake, gaze at the giraffes.

Special tip

Beware of the camels - they’ve got some nasty habits.

Riga zoo is more than 100 years old. It is located in a beautiful park called Mezaparks near the lake. It is quite big. Tropical house is very impressive. But the best time for a visit is from May till the end of September.
