Some years ago Andrejsala was a very popular place amongst young people at heart and soul. Many art and cultural events were organized, mostly of underground or non-commercial nature.
Nowadays one will find some great restaurants on a river bank with fantastic views over Pārdaugava. Andrejsala has changed over the years but still it has a different kind of charm compared to the rest of the city but it is definitely worth it to give it a try.
I like the very tip of the island’s Northern part – it can be a bit dodgy but it is the best for enjoying those fabulous sunsets in Riga or to get a little glimpse of how Riga Port is behaving.
If you have an adventurous spirit Andrejsala can be interesting all year long, at least for me it is, as all my favorite spots here are doing well no matter the season.
