Andrejsala (Andre's Island)
Andrejsala (Andre's Island, sala is Island in Latvian Language) but Andrejsala is actually half an island. It's located near the harbor.
In the past the place was a central point for Latvian artists who gathered and lived here.
There is a special feeling in the place, something inspiring. The place had a potential to turn into some type of "kristiana" (in Kopenhagen, Denmark), but eventually some years ago it went thought changes that resulted in it that most of the artists who lived there had to leave.
Today the place is half deserted but still has a special atmosphere. It's recommended to ride there with bicycle and simply sit next to the water or walk around.
