Corner of Basteja Boulevard and Smilsu Street
Riga
Basteja Boulevard was laid during the demolition of the city walls in 1858; running in parallel to the City Canal it separates the Canal and the park at the Bastion Hill from Old Riga. Smilsu (Sand) Street was the widest and most important street in Old Riga in the 13-17th centuries, following the Great Sand Road outside of the city.

More About Riga

Originated from a small fishermen village, for centuries Riga has been an important part of the trade chain between Russia and Western Europe. A lively crossroad of cultures and backgrounds for over 800 years, the historical centre of Riga has accumulated an impressive cultural baggage and today is justly included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage list.
