Jurmala, a seaside city and resort in Latvia, is well known for its natural resources - curative mud, mineral waters and pine forest. Find out how you can enjoy a weekend or holiday in Jūrmala during the summer.
Enjoy the summer on the beach of Jurmala
The almost 25 km-long white sand beach, which is well-landscaped for all, will allow everyone to find an undisturbed place for sunbathing and swimming.
One of the most popular beaches there is Majori beach - only 30 minutes from Riga city centre.
One of the main and oldest streets of Jurmala - Jomas street (Jomas iela), is a popular place for walking and dining after a pleasant day on the sunny beach.
Spend time with children, family and friends, do sports and enjoy the pine forest air! In Dzintaru mežaparks you can find playgrounds for children of different ages, walking and roller-skating paths, a skatepark, streetball court and cafés. The park is open all year round. In winter you can go cross-country skiing.
Pamper yourself with a spa holiday
Jurmala resort hotels offer a wide range of SPA services and are a perfect place to combine peaceful rest with health care. We recommend you to follow the latest offers of SPA centres and hotels, to find the most suitable holiday option.
The traditional Resort Festival of Jūrmala celebrates the beginning of summer all day long. You can enjoy the “Ice Cream Festival”, the unique international street dance competition “Ghetto Dance Hardcore Battle”, various concerts, as well as a festive procession.
Jurmala Open Air Museum
Although Jurmala is well known to everyone, rarely has anybody been to Jurmala's hidden treasure - the Open Air Museum. It is difficult to imagine that Jūrmala was a fishing village only a couple of decades ago. After visiting the museum, we recommend taking a walk in the nearby Ragakāpa Nature Park, where there is a particularly beautiful pine forest.
The Great Ķemeri Bog Trail
Get to know the bog and its inhabitants in the most popular sightseeing object of Ķemeri National Park. The Great Ķemeri Bog Trail offers an unforgettable walk along the boardwalks. If you have walked the trail of the Great Ķemeri Bog, we recommend you to go to the Sulphur Ponds and inhale the unusual smell.
Jūrmala is home to one of the largest heritage sites of historical wooden architecture in Latvia - 103 architectural monuments of national significance and 295 of local significance, which are worth admiring during the walk. We recommend to go along Jūras iela, where one of the most beautiful houses is located.
“Līvu Akvaparks” is the largest water amusement park in Northern Europe, offering more than 20 different slides, 10 pools of various depths and sizes, attractions for children, a SPA complex, as well as catering and a water bar.
Listen to the concert at Dzintari Concert Hall
Combine your holiday plans with a concert at Dzintari Concert Hall, where you can enjoy symphonic music, ballet, choir performances or some concert.
