Latvia’s sixth largest town marries traditional maritime values with an innovative, modern style; the sea air flows throughout the charming streets whilst children happily swing and jump around the myriad of playgrounds. Manmade attractions such as the children’s amusement playgrounds are becoming increasingly prevalent around Ventspils, however, the natural beauty of the coastline is arguably still the standout feature for the town. The beaches afford picturesque views at all times of year, though they can become incredibly cold and brisk in the colder months, so either wrap up warm in many layers or enjoy the panoramic vistas in the summer.
For a more relaxed and cultured experience, Ventspils Museum offers the chance to witness some of the ancient artefacts belonging to the region, as well as offering an insight into the history of Latvia’s northwest coast. A host of history and walking often results in a healthy appetite, so to satisfy your hunger, enjoy some classic Latvian food at one of the sumptuous restaurants.
