“The Dzintari Forest Park in Jūrmala is a great place for both lovers of active recreation, and also for those who prefer a leisurely stroll in the crisp pine air. The park is located in the heart of Jurmala, and its most valuable asset is the 200-year-old pine grove and protected habitats, which have remained intact even to this day. Go up the Dzintari watchtower The Dzintari watchtower, at 33.5 meters high, has a special large viewing platform, but throughout the entire height of the tower a total of 12 platforms are formed, overlooking all directions.

“The famous wooden villas dating from the 19th and first half of the 20th century and the sandy beaches. Take a train ride there - Latvian trains are old, exotic and cheap - less than 2 EUR one direction. The city and the train may be crowded in summer.

“My absolute favourite in Jūrmala. Fantastic seaside location, wonderful chef and perfect dining experience, food has always been delicious. Definitely worth the trip from Riga. Book a table, take the train to Bulduri and then walk along the beach - it will take a while (30 min on the train, 40 min on foot), but consider it an adventure. Or take a taxi if it sounds too much. ”

“15-20 min drive from Riga. In Soviet times Jūrmala was popular with the Communist officials because of its beach and sanatoriums - holidays were also given as rewards for top union members. It became one of the most popular holiday destinations in the whole Union. The most distinguishing architectural feature in Jūrmala is the prevalence of wooden houses dating from the 19th and first half of the 20th century. Most of the buildings were built by Baltic German and Latvian architects, but there also are works of Russian, Finnish and other architects. Jūrmala's architecture typically falls into classicism, national romanticism, and modern styles. The town has an official list of 414 historical buildings under protection, as well as over 4,000 wooden structures.”
