Wedding Padlocks Bridge
The site has still has prices in Lats (LVL), pages are not updated since long long time ago, but in any case it stays as it is as a nice souvenir to old times.
Padlock bridge is located in one of the most beautiful parks in Riga near the Freedom Monument and Bastejkalns.
The tradition is to put a padlock on a wedding day: lock it and then throw the key in the water (when it's not frozen, of course). The padlock can't be opened the same as marriage can't be divorced.
It is an old tradition, no one knows where it has started actually, but in Riga it's very popular - almost on every bridge you can find one or few padlocks.
Two months later and it's already Spring Time! And many new Padlocks are on the bridge:
