Welcomo to Jurmala
Jurmala city on the wave!
Jurmalais famous with its old history, traditions of resort treatment and recreation. In any time of a year people come here to enjoy pine-tree forests, sandy dunes, wide clear beach and charming wooden architecture. In winter Jurmala attracts guests by skiing along snowy beach, breathing curative fresh air, as well as relaxing in SPA centers or Līvu Aqua Park. In spring, when nature is awakening, there comes a time for bird watching in nature parks, rejuvenating in resort hotels for special package prices. Summer teases vacationers with a warm sea, active beach life, concerts and festivals, colorful culture and sport events and surely romantic sunsets….Along with autumn a time for inspiration and dreaming comes, that is why artistic and bohemian people with poetry pads or palettes, as well as business people are often guests in Jurmala. Both come to Jurmala for peace and quietness, a chance to stroll along the beach listening to the whisper of the waves and being alone with oneself far from city hustle.Jurmala has been also frequently chosen for seminars and corporate events as it allows its participants to combine fruitful work in nice atmosphere and leisure time activities offered by the SPA centers, tennis courts, yacht clubs, famous Dzintari concert hall, etc. Fresh air stimulates brainwork, but in the evening you can regain your strengths in a mineral water pool, relax in a SPA and Wellness centers, walk along the beach or ride a bicycle. Fellow travelers will also be able to find pleasant activities and options for relaxation, and that is the best privilege of the city!
Jurmala is also perfect place for families with children. In summer, families can enjoy carefree relaxation on the beach – to build sand castles, to swim, to fly a kite and to play with the sea waves. Also our guests can swing on the swings, to ride from slides or to get past hurdles in the children’s playgrounds on the beach or in Dzintari forest park. Older children can climb up to Dzintari forest parks’ watchtower. The annual antique carsparade will fascinate the boys, whilst girls can enjoy self-made presents like a beautifully painted cup in the Porcelain painting workshop. Trying something new, sporty children can start training in the golf club “Saliena Golf” or to ski along the coast and Dzintari forest park in winter.
