The Stone Bridge (Akmens tilts) is a low, road and pedestrian bridge that offers great views of the old town, and takes you to the AB Dam on the opposite bank, which has even better views. Despite its name, the Stone Bridge is not very old, dating back only to 1955. The original name of October Bridge is more fitting, but maybe not politically correct.
It's easy to reach by foot, but you have to first negotiate quite a few underpasses and stairs.
This bridge connects touristy old Riga with the reality of the town’s western part. Although showing some neoclassical elements, it was just finished in 1957.
