A very calm and peaceful park to stroll around and enjoy. It was minus 18 degrees while we were here, the river was just covered in snow so there wasn't much in the way of boating, however, the trees, nature, views and the space more...More

Very specific atmosphere along the channel in the city center. I think this channel is a piece of Holland in the Baltic country. Different lights under the brides of this channel can be seen when it is dark. We enjoyed a walk along this channel.

Lovely canal, winding through the city and alongside the old town, with some lovely parkland. Unfortunately it was raining the whole time we were here but in the summer it must be even better.
