Jurmala, located only 30 km from Riga, is a popular place for Locals to go to in the weekend. This place will fascinate you with its wooden architecture with woodcut accents, its pretty beaches that are stretching along the 26 km coastline and its romantic streets. Take the opportunity to take part in Jurmala’s many leisure activities such as swimming, walking and cycling on sand dunes and afterwards you can explore the characteristic wooden art nouveau architecture in Jurmala. Are you bringing kids? No problems! Take them to ‘Līvu akvaparks’ –Northern Europe’s largest water amusement park located in Jurmala. Have some serious water fun with slides, water labyrinths of several heights and differences, splashing devices and outlines of games. If you prefer to be just outdoors in the nature with kids then go to special beach playgrounds or take them to the forest park Dzintari to explore the playgrounds with skateboard and basketball fields. We would highly recommend to rent a bike and go cycling along the beach or on special bike routes to see Jurmala’s gorgeous wooden architecture and forests. Visit also Kemeri National Park to learn about the high-type swamp and its inhabitants. Get on the fabulous walk along the wooden pathway and see a kingdom of moss, swamp pine trees and dark lakes. Jurmala is a perfect destination for wellness and spa. That’s why we would highly recommend you to treat yourself to a relaxing and recovering spa treatment in Jurmala Spa Hotel after an active day. Try one or five of the amazing 100 different treatments and explore the sauna and pool area.
