Šampēteris is on the left bank of Daugava River in Riga’s Pārdaugava district. In bygone days Šampēteris was a manor house, then in the late 19th century it became an important industrial area. It has been incorporated within the City of Riga since 1919. Šampēteris has brick and timber private homes as well as modern architectural structures, and pretty tree-lined avenues give it special character - perfect for your morning jog. Šampēteris is the perfect location for avoiding the city center bustle while remaining firmly in the modern world.
