Dobele is a city (as well as a municipality) that lies along the banks of the Berze River about 50 miles from Riga. The quiet town of around 11,000 inhabitants is mainly famous for its quarterly festivals and for its very lovely gardens, especially the Peteris Upitis Garden and Museum that showcases over 200 hybrid species of fragrant lilacs. History lovers can visit the Semigallian Castle Mounds, which are over 1,000 years old – guided tours of the semi-renovated ruins are available, and you will get a wonderful view of the city from the tower. There are various interesting museums to visit, including the Piksas Farm and Lici Antiquities Collection where you can see many vintage farm implements.
