And then, someone else recognized the potential of this beautiful place and added a touch of artistry with wooden sculptures.

  • Kalsnavas arborētums jūnijā – sapņu dārzs iedvesmai un pastaigām

    Kalsnava arboretum in June. A garden of dreams for inspiration and walks.

    Get lost in the cloud of rhododendrons. Climb the lookout tower. Pass through a tunnel of pipe plants or hide under thuja trees. These are the reasons why I love Latvia's "third botanical garden" (as it is called).

  • Ko redzēt Ragakāpas dabas parkā un Jūrmalas brīvdabas muzejā?

    What to see on the Ragakāpa nature trail and the Jurmala open-air museum?

    For some, the perfect power cocktail is made of ginger and other herbs. But for others during the gloomy time of the year, walking in the seaside air and getting to know new places is what gives them energy. Ragakāpa Nature Park is one of those "quick" energy cocktails. You can get it quickly because it is located only ~20 km from Riga (depending on which place you measure from).
