Jurmala - the biggest resort city in the Baltic States!
Jurmala is the city by the Gulf of Riga stretching along 26 km of coastline with modern relaxation and resort facilities. It has become the largest resort area in the Baltics as well as a popular location for international conferences and meetings.
Jurmala is divided into 14 residential areas and train stops - Priedaine, Lielupe, Bulduri, Dzintari, Majori, Dubulti, Jaundubulti, Pumpuri, Melluži, Asari, Vaivari, Sloka, Jaunķemeri and Ķemeri.
There is the peace and quiet of Priedaine, and there is Jomas Street, the street in Majori always on the go, with its many little restaurants and diverse entertainment. Bulduri and Dzintari are classic Nouveau and contemporary summer-house districts. From Vaivari to Jaundubulti there are single-family homes with small summer cottages and reminiscences of Jurmala’s once-famed strawberry fields. Farthest west lies Kemeri – administrative centre of Kemeri National Park, with mineral water and curative and mud sources unique in the world, and outstanding nature trails.
The city’s beaches are its largest draw. Majori and Jaunkemeri beaches have received the Blue Flag, which means they are clean, safe and well-maintained. The Blue Flag beaches are especially popular with vacationers. At the beach you can hire paddle-boats and jet skis, play football and beach volleyball, or learn to windsurf.
With pleasure Jurmala is waiting each and every visitor - whether you are staying for a moment or a few days or longer, to enjoy the sea breeze, the sun, nature, architecture and cultural life. Jurmala – the place to meet, the place for love, the place to come back to again and again!
