Let your beast out
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.
Beware of the camels - they’ve got some nasty habits.
