For the entire week, local residents and guests have the chance to savour the season’s best foods prepared by experienced and innovative chefs who give each meal a modern and sophisticated twist.
If you have some days available in Riga, we suggest you to visit the city of Kuldiga. Kuldīga has always been admired and praised by both poets and painters. The red roof tiles and the calm atmosphere of the charming small town of Kurzeme encourages taking a slow stroll through the silent streets, riding a bike or watching a movie under the open sky. Visit Kuldīga – one of the “European Destinations of Excellence”! The historical buildings of Kuldīga, capital of the former Duchy of Courland, and its nature create a unique, harmonious ensemble, which cannot be found anywhere else in Europe. The centre of Kuldīga, developed in 17-18th century, has preserved its old wooden houses shaping small and narrow streets, while foundations of the houses in the old town form the banks of the small Alekšupīte River. The picturesque brick bridge in Kuldīga is one of the longest such bridges in Europe. The town is also famous for the widest waterfall in Europe Ventas Rumba (249 m). During springs and autumns a peculiar view can be observed at the waterfall, when the spawning fish swarm tries to cross the waterfall by jumping in the air. Probably the most outstanding photos of your Latvia trip will be taken in Kuldīga!
