Ķemeri National Park was founded in 1997 to preserve natural, cultural and historical values of the area as well as to protect the formation processes of mineral waters and curative mud. The Park is home to several plant species included in the Red Book of Latvia; protected bird species, e.g., White-tailed Eagle, Eagle Owl, Black Stork, Crane, as well as other rare animals. 3 eco routes have been established in the Park – boardwalk in Kemeri Raised Bog (closed for technical reasons!), boardwalk in Black Alder swamp and walking trail near LakeSlokas. These can be explored both – on your own and in the company of a guide.

Rare and endangered plant species and rare European birds such as White-tailed eagle, eagle-owls, black storks and cranes, as well as different rare animals can be found in Ķemeri National Park. Wild horses and cows can be watched in Dunduru meadows. Several eco-trails are developed in the park.

Ragakāpa is an 800m long and 100m wide naturally born dune. Very old pine stands (approximately 340 years), as well as rare plant and bird species are found in the park. There are benches, informative signs and boards, sight platforms on the trail.

In 1910 for the donated money, the first Gardening school in Latvia was founded. The school was opened in Bulduri, on a territory of the historical centre of Bulduri manor. In 1911 the first school building was settled. By the beginning of World War I a remarkable household was created here – the garden had 200 species of fruit-trees, as well as carrots, tomatoes and corn were cultivated.

Now it is possible to view gracious avenues of rhododendrons and flower-beds, grown by students and teachers of the school. A museum of the school is open for visitors upon request. 

Black alders’ wet forest belongs to wetland broad-leaved forests with high level of groundwater that seasonally floods roots of the trees. Walking down the 600 m long trail you can see flood-land black alder forests and river Vēršupīte. The swamp forest is suitable place for Latvian woodpecker species.

The forest is especially amazing in spring, when the ground is covered with a carpet of yellow marigold flowers and the air is vibrating with birds’ songs and woodpecker knocking.

Built in 1897. Architect - H.Shel. Built in traditions of historism architecture. There is an altar piece “Christ healing the sick” (1943 - I.Zeberiņš) and a memorial plank for Ķemeri inhabitants fallen during the fight for freedom placed in the church.

On 1889, using the donated money, priest Jānis Jacevičs (1821 – 1902) built a church in Majori. In 1905, the archbishop of Mogilev – metropolitan Juris Jāzeps Elijas Šembeks, consecrated the church.

The first part of hotel was built in 1896, but the auxiliary – in 1924. Initially, the building was a private boarding house where summer residents lived.
