In 1870 Mr Horn built the first hotel in Majori, and a concert garden where the famous symphonic orchestras performed. In 1896 the first movie in Jūrmala was shown here. Despite the fact that in 1913 the Horn’s Garden together with all the ambient buildings burnt down in fire, now  Jūrmala cultural centre is located there and the music again  is played in the garden. The Horn’s garden was renovated in 2005.

Miers means "peace" in Latvian, and if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Riga, a peaceful haven awaits you in the Bohemian-style quarter on Miera Street, with its string of charming cafes and shops.

Every year, one day in the month of May, Miera Street is closed to traffic for its special festival featuring live music, performances, games&attractions, an arts&crafts fair, various workshops. On nearby Aristida Briāna Street, at the cafe/night club "Piens" (Latvian: milk), summertime brings its festival (usually on a Sunday) for outdoor concerts, refreshing milkshakes and new friends.

A new and already-popular addition to the quarter – right next to ‘’Piens”, is the ‘’9kl” Arts Centre, just a few doors from the micro-brewery "Labietis", with its very own brands made from unusual ingredients.

Meanwhile, at Miera 22, it’s the Chocolate Museum at the "Laima" Confectionary with its unique interactive exhibit. A bit farther ahead is another venue for artistic endeavors – the territory of the former tobacco factory ("Tabakas fabrika").

Still forward, within walking distance, is "Lielie kapi" - the former mayoral cemetery (late 18th century), now resting place for many celebrities.
