The Venta Waterfall

The Venta waterfall (Ventas rumba) is the widest waterfall in Europe.

An interesting phenomenon can be observed near the waterfall in spring and autumn when spawning fish try to get over the waterfall by jumping through the air. While the beauty of the Venta waterfall is not the wild, breathtaking beauty of the major waterfalls in the world, the Venta waterfall and the old brick bridge still create the impression of an idyllic, quiet town. Looking from the side of the bridge, it seems to be just a small waterfall.

To appreciate its true beauty, one must spend at least ten to fifteen minutes there and climb down to one of the river banks.
