Enjoy the Resort Festival

Kūrorta svētki Jūrmalā

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

Jūrmalas brīvdabas muzejs

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

Lielā Ķemeru purva tīreļa taka

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.

 

Wooden architecture

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 aquapark

Līvu akvaparks

“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.
