History is still alive in Ventspils Old Town, in the Castle of the Livonian Order, and in the narrow cobbled streets of Ostasgals. A 6 metre high and 23 tonne anchor is displayed on the Anchor Path. A ride on the narrow gauge railway “Mazbānītis” or in the velo rail car at the Maritime Open Air Museum offer unique sensations, as does a tour of the aquatorium of Ventspils Port in the ship “Hercogs Jēkabs”.
Ventspils Adventure Park offers a hill for skiing, a rope track, bobsled, and BMX tracks, trampolines, kiiking swings, a summer tubing track, and other entertainment. Ventspils is also called the flower capital of Latvia. You will find unique flower sculptures here – “The Underwater World”, “The Bobsleigh Team”, “The Ladybirds”, “A Family of Ducks”, as well as the only Flower Clock in Latvia. Ventspils is a family and recreation friendly city.
