Mezhapark and Zoo

Mezhapark 2007

The Mezhapark is one the most beautiful and prestige residential areas of Riga, and the most favourite place for the rest for Riga people. Until the middle of the 19th century farmers lived on the place and represented here their goods. At the end of 19th century the main engineer of Riga A. Agte decided to build summer cottages in the Lake Kishezers region. The construction works started at the beginning of the 20th century. More then 100 residential houses were built. But the situation changed after the World War II, when beautiful villas have been nationalised and afterwards - left off. In the 90s of 20th century the houses were given back to their owners. Nowadays Mezhapark is one of the most prestigious regions of the city.
