Lake Dzirnavu is a beautiful place with an interesting history in the centre of Valmiera for walks and leisure.
Lake Dzirnavu is located at the foot of a medieval fortification called Zilais bastions (Blue Bastion). The water mill operated here from the 17th century until 1937 when the mill building was demolished.
The fountain, which is like a bouquet in the middle of the lake Dzirnavu, is beautifully illuminated in the evenings. Walking paths and observation decks are installed all around the lake.
