Student dormitory SMARTments Riga is housed in a former soviet building of the Railway Transport Engineers Institute and has preserved some interior elements of it. However it is fully renovated apartment building now that brings together enthusiastic, open minded and young at heart individuals. A little bit of industrial feel here is blended with a contemporary touch.
Student dormitory SMARTments Riga is situated in a historical and green district – Torņakalns (Tower Hill). It is located on the westbank of the Daugava River, known as Pārdaugava. More and more people nowadays, especially the young ones, move from the city center to this neighborhood, because of its green areas, laid-back vibes and the increase of trendy places. The name Torņakalns derives from a fortified tower built in the Middle Ages close to the Daugava River.
Māras dārzs (Mary’s Garden) encircles the Māras dīķis (Mary’s Pond) and is located only 9 min walking distance from SMARTments premises. It is a great park to relax, do some sports, take a walk and be close to nature. The Mārupe (Mary’s creek) then continues into Arkādijas parks (Arcadian Park), where early 20th century landscaping provides an oasis from the city. It is a romantic and beautiful park only 7 min walking distance from SMARTments residence hall.
