“Medics to the world”
This sculpture can be seen at Valdemara street, near Latvian Museum of Art and Latvian Art Academy. The idea of this piece of art is to reflect on the importance of medicine workers, who need support of the society not only in the difficult times during the pandemic, but also in everyday life so that the medical workers could take care of those who need this. If you live in the centre, which is very rich with the greenery, you would definitely enjoy slow strolls around its central districts.
In case you are fond of journeys on the bike, you would really enjoy passing another big sculpture in the Jaunā Teika district. This artwork was created by Denis Prasolov from Saint Petersburg for the Riga quadriennale “Conservatism and Liberalism” that took place in 2016. Initially this sculpture was located in Kronvalda park, but some time ago its location was changed. By the way, there is a coworking space Teikums in this district as well.
If you like to observe the urban life or are a skateboarder yourself, the skaters square is worth to go through. This square is located behind Latvian Museym of Art, on the corner of Elizabetes and Valdemara streets, in Esplanāde park. It has an international youth get-together.
There is no Riga without me
The letters R GA put on the square near the Monument of Liberty invite everyone to take a photograph and share it with the friends around the world. The text below says “There is no Riga without me”.
Visiting Mežaparks these summer days during the sunny weekends might be a good idea. Whether you head there with the bike or scooter, there is enough space for everyone. The labyrinth of beautiful alleys hidden in the greenery of this park allows to choose own route and enjoy the fresh air. To make the day more interesting you can visit the alley with the 3D street art.
To add the final touch to the day-off it is worth visiting probably the most famous café of this district, Cabo café. It has marvelous view over the Kišezers lake from its terrace and the territory around it.
