Wedding lock bridge at the Bastion Hill park in Riga
Riga

Attaching locks to bridges is one of the most popular tradtions among newly wedded couples in Latvia - it symbolises firmness and stability of their marriage, esto perpetua so to say. The bridge of Bastion Hill has probably the most extensive collection of locks in Riga - from simple and practical items to rare vintage - and every single lock is a surety of someone's love story that wants to continue forever... :)

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.
