Why locals love it

Vermanes Garden is one of the oldest and of our favourite parks in Riga. It's in the middle of the city and it also feels like the big city life. There is something to do for everyone - families with children, young couples, old couples, hipsters, loners, and high rollers.

Why you should visit it

You should visit it at least to see the people who loose themselves in the magical world of... chess. Just next to the open-air stage you’ll find local experts flocking around chess boards. If you’re good, you’ll be welcome to join.
