Here is another one airing trail where one can enjoy nature of Latvia. It is pleasure and very easy to walk here, because the trail is made by footbridge. If you walk quietly, there may be possibility to see some water bird, which hides in reeds. Going out from forest, will lead you to the castle mound. From here you can see very well the lake and also the small islands which stands on it like small buttons. The lake is a home place for many birds, may be therefore the name in Liiv language translates as goose. There are some tales about castle mound which says that somewhere here are stored treasures, but who knows :). If you continue your walk by footbridge you'll reach the parking place.
Not far from the highway going to Kandava you can find large stone, which is called as devil's stone. According to one legend, once upon a time devil wanted to hit a stone in Abava river to block it, but he didn't manage in time, before rooster song. So now the two meters high stone stands upon hill, from where you can see very beautiful landscape. But if you climb down, you'll be able to see cave, which is called devil's cave, and as it is in all caves in Latvia, you can't crawl into them.
If you want to find a tree to which one can't put around hands, then you must see the largest oak tree in the Baltic states. The tree is more over then ten meters round and it says that it is very, very old. The oak during his life has suffered and he also was struck by the lightning, but still one branch greens every year.
The castle was built in 1901 as Riga mayor's hunting and country house. It was designed by monsieur Bokslaf in neogothic style. It's worth to visit inside of the castle, because here you can see wide horn collection and also very interesting tile stove. During the war here was located hospital, but nowadays here is a museum and, of course, you can enjoy night.
Around the castle you can get several attractions, you can ride horse or go boating in nearest lake.
In the basement, near the entrance one can have a good meal, after visiting castle.
By the way, translating the castle's name literally in English it means 'new pains'.
Mara's chambers are narrow and long caves near Abava river. With caves there are connected few tales, one of them tells that once upon a time here stood castle which went down somewhere there. As I already mentioned it's not allowed to crawl into caves.
